Creating Heirlooms
Featured Rug of the Month
May 2017
PEI Morning, 13"x24"
Designed and hooked by Laura Vatour
I am from New Brunswick, Canada (east coast), and I belong to the Richibucto Rug-Hookers. Here's a photo of my first project in yarn. It is a scene from Prince Edward Island that I love. Most of our hookers work with Briggs & Little yarn, either 100% wool, or 80/20 with nylon. The wool is produced by a family-run mill here in New Brunswick.

My first hooked rug is done in cotton strips, a technique I learned at the Acadian Historic Village in Caraquet, NB. I am also including a picture of that one. It is a bit of a memory rug, because the fabric pieces are from significant items from my past.
