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.

 

THE NEWS AS OF SEPTEMBER, 2017 

Cathy Kelly in our shared booth at Mama’s Minerals Arts and Crafts Fair, 2016. Come visit us this year on September 23!

As a still newish resident of New Mexico, Albuquerque’s Fiber Arts Fiesta, May 19-21, was a big hit for me. It was a TON of work, but a truly excellent experience.

On Memorial Day weekend, High on Hooking began its 2nd year as a vendor at the Albuquerque Rail Yards Market (farmers’ market, yummy food, art, and music). Dates you can find us there:

  • June 11, 25
  • July 9, 23
  • August 6, 20
  • September 10, 24
  • October 15

June 17:  Amigos Art Show and Ice Cream Social, Cerillos, NM (near Madrid), was a success. Sold my “Welcome to New Mexico” rug to a nice lady from Santa Fe.

August 26:  Sunflower Festival, Mountainair, NM – My first time in this town. Lots of fun! Will definitely go back next year.

“The First Boucherouite” hooked from old bed sheets with a little t-shirt added in.
