Rug making has long been one of the most popular crafts. It is just as fascinating now as it was in the olden times. Well constructed rugs last a long time and add beauty to the interior of any home.

Handmade rugs may be hooked, braided, knitted, crocheted and various other ways. They may be made small, large, round, oval, square and oblong. Whatever fits the needs of your home.

Today I’m taking a couple pages from a 1950’s Needlework How To booklet about Rug Making, specifically, Hooking a Rug.
