Rug Hooking is a traditional American art. It was first done of necessity and as a way of brightening up dark houses during long winters. It is now done mostly as a creative outlet and a way of having a traditional mat for the floor which is durable. Susie's primitive style rugs are original designs that depict family memories, pets, and important events in our lives. They are made of recycled wool clothes, cut by hand and dyed at home. Like the traditional artists, Susie sometimes pushes the boundaries and tries new ideas within this style.
