Guest at Last Guild Meeting
Lisa, a recent guest to our guild, brought a rug that her great-grandmother hooked in the 1940s for her grand-child, Lisa's mom.
Lisa's great-grandmother, a resident of Nova Scotia, was an avid hooker. The Scotty Dog rug had been damaged on the edges by years of wear. In this photo, member BettyAnn in repairing a damaged spot.
Lisa was seeking suggestions on how to preserve this piece of her family history. The rug was hooked on burlap from a light-weight fabric which might have been rayon or cotton.
