22nd Annual Rug Hooking Award Winners
for 2018

Congratulations to the 2018 award winners!

SAUDER AWARD


Design:
 "Dad" 
Designed and Hooked by: Cindy Irwin

Description: "Dad" is a tribute to my father who passed away a year before I hooked the rug. He is in the bottom right corner. The rug contains a small compilation of family memorabilia. I used clothing from everyone in my family to hook the rug, and included motifs that were meaningful to our family. The school, which my brother, sister, and I also attended, is still standing. Needless to say, it's a family favorite.
