The Shockoe Slip Rug Hooking Guild is a non-profit group based in Richmond, VA. Its purpose is to promote the art of traditional rug hooking through education, creativity and fellowship. Our Guild is open to anyone interested in learning or sustaining this wonderful fiber art.
Our diverse group of about 28 rug hookers includes a McGown Certified rug hooking instructor, a Rug Hooking Magazine contributing author and many prize winning rug hookers. The styles of rug hooking within the group vary greatly and much can be learned from each other at our meetings.
We have been a registered chapter of the Association of Traditional Hooking Artists (ATHA) since October 7, 2003.
