Evolution of Rug Hooking at Stone School Museum Monday Night 3/22

A lecture on the Evolution of Rug Hooking: A History of Rug Hooking in the New England Area will be presented tomorrow night, Monday, March 22nd, by Kathy Spellacy at the Stone School Museum at 7 p.m.  This lecture is free and open to the public.

Kathy will speak about “primitive hooking” which came before the traditional hooking. Men and women used worn out clothing like denim, cotton, wool, twine, and burlap to make rugs.  Color planning was never an issue because people would use only what they had.  Kathy will bring a couple of lap frames so several people will be able to give rug hooking a try.  

Kathy has many years of experience with rug hooking, quilting and needlework. For additional , information visit her shop at Wool & Goods in Rollinsford or call (603) 834-6583.  
The Newmarket Historical Society meets on the fourth Monday of the month,  March through October at 7 p.m at the Stone School Museum. An informative lecture is scheduled every month.  All meetings are free and open to the public.
