(Cedarburg, WI) — Rug Hooking Demo and Display at Ye Old Schoolhouse Quilt Shop
PART OF THE CEDARBURG SPUR FIBER ARTS TRAIL WEEKEND
Rug hooking, long thought of as a primitive craft, has taken the contemporary world of fiber and textiles by storm. During the Cedarburg Spur Fiber Arts Trail weekend, the Cream City Rug Hooking Guild will showcase member work, demonstrate how to hook rugs and talk about why this group of ‘hookers’ are passionate about their art. Joyce Krueger will have an assortment of her traditional and contemporary hooked pieces available for visitors to see.

The guild’s bi-monthly meetings offer a creative environment for members to share ideas and improve rug hooking skills. The 2018 Hook-In is tentatively scheduled for April 26, 2018. Date will be confirmed in January, 2018.
