Atlantic Rug Hooking Supplies has been created primarily from a desire to meet the needs of rug hookers in the far east region of Canada. My first introduction to this craft/art was in 1975 when I purchased a small sample kit in Cape Breton. Although the piece was started several times, it was only completed when the small hook that came with the kit was replaced with a Moschimer hook several years later.
Busy with a career and family, and a variety of other textile related projects, rug hooking eventually re-surfaced in 2004, and has become a constant activity as time has become available. Enthusiasm continues to grow when our group of rug hookers meet. The mats that are created there, along with the books and magazine articles that highlight this work provide for an endless expanse of ideas for new projects. The friendship that develops, along with the support and encouragement from "more seasoned" hookers is like icing on the cake.
