Rug Hooking Isn't Just for Underfoot!

Our members create cushions, footstools, wall hangings, coasters, trivets and purses. Here is a tea cozy, hooked by Sharon, from a design that was included in the Spring, 2008 issue of Needle Pulling Thread magazine. Sharon has created a colourful English garden around the cottage. Smaller hooked pieces like this are an excellent way to use up left-over bits of wool. A hooked tea cozy is an attractive way to keep your tea piping hot or it makes a welcome gift.
