The Alberta Handicrafts Guild meets at Bow Cliff Centre, and one of the divisions of the Guild is the Rug Hookers. There is an increased interest in Rug Hooking lately and this group has grown.
The skill level to begin is very simple, a few supplies such as scissors, a hook, and some material can get you started, and your only limit is your own creativity. Many of the members create their own designs, but to get started you can use a pattern.
Watch this video to see Cheryl working on a project, and talking about Rug Hooking and the Alberta Handicrafts Guild.
