Hooked rugs are the most well documented of the traditional rugs, but with all the rug hooking books available, very little has been written about the hooks themselves. Rug hooks as we think of them really didn't come into use until the Arts and Crafts period in the 1890s. At that time, there was enough interest in rug hooking that needle manufacturers began to produce a standardized item called a rug hook. Typically, these hooks had wooden handles, a centered shaft with a hook, and a steel collar at the base of the handle. In earlier times, rug hooks were hand made individually, gradually evolving to the modern hook from a very different design and construction.

I do travel to Owen Sound, Hanover and Walkerton, Mount Forest, and Kitchener/Waterloo/Cambridge fairly regularly and would consider meeting for delivery at your local Tim Horton's or similar. All serious replies will be answered.
