HIGH ON HOOKING

Welcome to High on Hooking!

Here at High on Hooking we do “less than traditional” rug hooking. That is, the mats and rugs aren’t necessarily fashioned using only woolen strips or yarn. I prefer to “up-cycle” my materials from old clothes (even t-shirts and jeans!), funky fabrics, old bed sheets, and notions like yarns and ribbon. Cutting cloth strips by hand to a fairly broad width gives each mat a bit of a rustic and bulky charm, creating something you can really sink your toes into. They look good on the wall too.

A recent relocation from New England to New Mexico means that new images and inspirations are imprinting on themselves on my brain all the time. Join me in my “culture shock.” I think it’ll mean great things for my art.
