England, Scotland, or France; we can't really pinpoint where rug hooking began. When? That's hard to define too. What we sort of know is that rug hooking migrated across the Atlantic during the early 1800's. Rug hooking was, and still is, very common in the Canadian Maritimes, Newfoundland, Labrador, and the New England states. In the past, rug hooking was referred to as a past-time of the poor or a country craft. Today, these rugs are art!
