The complete guide to creating and designing modern rug hooking projects for the home, from artist and teacher Rose Pearlman. Punch needle rug hooking is a forgiving and satisfying fiber craft with stunning results, which is part of the reason it's undergoing a surge of interest, with Rose Pearlman--a longtime rug hooker and artist--helping to lead a new wave of enthusiasm. Focusing on color, texture, and design, Rose's abstract designs for functional objects bring this traditional art into the contemporary craft world. Through the 22 projects in this book, you'll discover the versatility of form and function that can be explored through simple materials. Start with small projects to familiarize yourself with the process--a zip pouch, slide shoes, and a mini purse; from there, graduate to more ambitious pieces--a bolster, a reversible rug, and a catchall basket. With your rug hooking skills honed, turn toward the innovative--a headboard made with plant-dyed and stripped bed sheets and art to hang made with repurposed plastic bags. With details on the use of color, creating a strong composition, and using unusual materials, this is an artist's guide to an incredibly versatile craft.

Rug hooking tools and equipment made simple, from advice on choosing the perfect wool to finishing your hooked rug. For some, when they think of latch hook, they immediately picture the 1970s, but this rug-making technique has been around for around a hundred years and has never really gone away. In the 21st century, latch hook is modern, colorful, and often a lot more abstract than the latch-hooked clown kits from days gone by. It's a great way to use partial skeins of yarn and you can transform your work into wall hangings, pillows, rugs, and more!

Through a close look at the history of the modernist hooked rug, this book raises important questions about the broader history of American modernism in the first half of the twentieth century. Although hooked rugs are not generally associated with the avant-garde, this study demonstrates that they were a significant part of the artistic production of many artists engaged in modernist experimentation. Cynthia Fowler discusses the efforts of Ralph Pearson and of Zoltan and Rosa Hecht to establish modernist hooked rug industries in the 1920s, uncovering a previously undocumented history. The book includes a consideration of the rural workers used to create the modernist narrative of the hooked rug, as cottage industries were established throughout the rural Northeast and South to serve the ever increasing demand for hooked rugs by urban consumers. Fowler closely examines institutional enterprises that highlighted and engaged the modernist hooked rugs, such as key exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the 1930s and '40s. This study reveals the fluidity of boundaries among art, craft and design, and the profound efforts of a devoted group of modernists to introduce the general public to the value of modern art.

Learn to hook with easy step-by-step photos! Rug hooking at its simplest is pulling loops of colorful wool fabric through a piece of linen backing to create beautiful designs for the floor or wall. Though in years past this was accomplished with a bent nail, a feed bag, and worn-out clothing, today we have specialized hooks and other tools that make the process much easier. In Basic Rug Hooking, you will learn what tools and materials you need to get started, and how to pull your first loops. Once you've learned and practiced the basics, you will be ready to try any of the 5 hooked projects included. Each project includes the pattern and complete step-by-step illustrated instructions. The styles of rugs you can make once you've learned the basic hooking process are endless.

PUBLISHED WITH THE MAINE STATE MUSEUM Founded in 1836, the Maine State Museum is America’s oldest state museum and is known to many as “Maine’s Smithsonian” because of the breadth and diversity of its holdings—nearly a million objects covering every aspect of the state’s cultural, biological, and geological history—and the thousands of stories its collections tell. For this book the museum selected and photographed 112 artifacts and specimens that, together, tell an epic story of the land and its people from prehistoric times to the present. It is a story covering 395 million years, a story told with a walrus skull and fossils, tourmaline and spear points, mammoth tusks and bone fishhooks, Norse coins and caulking irons, militia flags and survey stakes, treaty documents and wooden tankards, a temperance banner and a locomotive, Joshua Chamberlain’s pistol and a cod tub trawl, a Lombard log hauler and a woman’s WWII welding outfit, L. L. Bean boots and German POW snowshoes, and many more objects from the museum’s collections. Short narratives written by museum curators are woven around each item—including photos of related objects—and the ensemble has been honed, polished, and introduced by museum director Bernard Fishman. This is a book that historians and Maine residents and visitors will delve into again and again, unearthing new treasures with each reading.
