"Each issue of Rug Hooking contains feature articles and departments that teach a variety of lessons on dyeing, color planning, design, hooking techniques, rug hooking history, and more. The features cover topics ranging from the development of American Indian motifs in hooked rugs to how to hook Christmas ornaments. A selection of articles and patterns from each of the regularly published departments appears in our Archives. In addition, each issue of Rug Hooking features: reviews of new and classic books and videos; a comprehensive engagement calendar; profiles of rug hooking schools, exhibits, and special events; questions answered by expert rug hookers; and descriptions of the newest supplies and services. Our newest column, The Loop, lists rug hookers looking for others in their hometown."
