A Passion for Hand-Hooked Rugs

Not only does she teach locally, but Lucille also travels and gives workshops. She has taught classes around the country from California to Maine. She has exhibited at the American Museum of Folk Art in New York where her pieces are sold in the gift shop. With all this behind her, what does Lucille hope for the future? She explains her goal is to reach out to the community and educate people about the craft, even writing a book on the history of rug hooking.

Recently Lucille’s 4-year-old granddaughter, Emma, pulled her first hoop, and Lucille happily claims she has a rug hooker in the making. So it looks like fulfilling her hopes for the future has already begun.
