The Rug Hooking Magazine  is the leading resource for artists who design and create hooked rugs. Every year the magazine’s editors present a book called CELEBRATION which showcases a juried selection of the best hand-hooked rugs collected  from over the past year.  Entries are now closed for Celebration 28 (due for publication later in 2018) and a panel of judges are currently reviewing submissions.  These annual publications always  show hand-crafted rugs in high quality photography with detailed close-up shots of the handiwork and the fibre art.

Here are a few TSS selections from the 2017 Edition of ‘Celebration’ for readers to view.
