Mary Sheppard Burton's Family Rugs

Mary Sheppard Burton created a wonderful series of rugs which she entitled the "Tell Me 'Bout Series."

Each rug recounts a family story.

Mary passed away recently. One of her major accomplishments was creating her own designs and encouraging other hookers to do so, at a time when the majority of the North American hooking community used only McGown patterns. This was considered an act of rebellion at the time! --Rita
