Ten thousand loops.*
Two square feet. 12”x24” or 17”x17”.
And a story…

Sometime in the next couple of months, Rug Hooking Daily will accept its ten-thousandth member! That seems like a major milestone, a chance for celebration, an opportunity to introduce ourselves to the wider group.

What's Rug Hooking Daily you ask? It's a fun, free, online rug hooking community with members from all over the world. You must be a member of Rug Hooking Daily to enter the contest, but it couldn't be easier to join!

The thing that I love about the Celebration book series from Rug Hooking Magazine is the story that goes with the rug. Invariably, the first thing I do when the book arrives is to page through it. Ooh… Wow… Beautiful… Then I read the stories. Why they made the rug, what were the challenges, etc. That’s what really gets me to look at the rug, study it’s details.

What should you say about your rug? Whatever you like! You can talk about why you chose that design, anything at all about how you hooked it, any special challenges, etc. And maybe include something about yourself, how long you've been hooking, where you're from, etc. 

The thing about ten thousand loops is that they are all connected. Rug Hooking Daily helps us to make those connections.

It wouldn’t surprise me if many Rug Hooking Daily members have graced those Celebration pages. But this contest would just be for the “Dailies.” It wouldn’t have to be a new rug, but at two square feet, it’s not too much of a challenge.

The deadline for entries is May 31, 2020. But keep in mind the contest will be limited to the first 100 entries, so get yours in as soon as you can. Entry fee is $10.00, one entry per person.

It wouldn’t have to be designed by you (although original designs will receive more points). Anything goes, any materials or embellishments. It can be hooked, punched or latched, as long as it’s roughly 288 square inches. And as long as there is a story.

All of the finalists in the first round will be published in a book, but the cash prize winners will be chosen by the members of Rug Hooking Daily.
First Prize: $150.00       
Second Prize: $90.00       
Third Prize: $60.00

*Ten thousand loops is only an estimate. Everyone has their own hooking style. No one will be counting your loops!
