Rug Hooking Magazine Releases Latest Celebration Book

September 01 , 2017

Northbrook, IL—Rug Hooking magazine released the 27th edition of its annual Celebration book, Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs 27, on September 1, 2017. A beloved tradition, the book showcases projects from rug hookers from around the world. The Conspiracy, hooked by Marion Sachs, was chosen to be featured on the cover.

Entrants started submitting their rugs for consideration in October 2016. Four judges, Gail Becker, Peggy Hannum, Dianne Stoffel, and Michele Wise, evaluated and rated each rug, and the top ones were chosen as the winners. This year, there were 58 winners and 14 honorable mentions. Each winner gets a two-page spread in the book with a story about their rug as well as a short biography. The rugs were placed into four categories: original designs, commercial designs, adaptations, and primitive designs.

Celebration winners are invited to showcase their rug during Rug Hooking Week, hosted each year by Sauder Village in Archbold, Ohio. Rug Hooking Week runs from August 16–19, 2017, and participants can attend retreats and workshops with fellow rug hookers to work on current projects or start a whole new one. The theme for this year’s Rug Hooking Week is “Year of the Man,” celebrating the contributions men have made in exhibits, classes, and vendors.

Those who purchase Celebration 27 will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite rugs in the annual Reader’s Choice competition, hosted on the Rug Hooking magazine website. Readers can vote from August 14, 2017 through December 31, 2017. The winners of the Reader’s Choice competition will be featured in a spread in an upcoming issue of Rug Hooking magazine.

Submissions for Celebration 28 open in October 2017.
