Product Description

In Story Rugs and their Storytellers, author Paulette Hackman focuses on a visual style of storytelling, as old as cave art, that is gaining popularity among contemporary rug hookers. The fiber artist who hooks in this narrative style, she writes, is the one "puts words to wool, sentences to lines, a page of creative musing to a yard of blank linen." the rugs tell of celebrations, travels, and adventures and illustrate personal journeys, strongly held beliefs, poignant memories, and milestones of family heritage.
