Norma Rowsell Elliott
I am a Newfoundland-born, summer resident of the Twillingate NL area. It was
somewhat ironic that I discovered hooking only much later in life, through
a weekend course offered at the Twillingate Museum.
I love rug hooking. It satisfies my love of fibre and colour. And detail.
It makes me happy.
Not being a conformist at heart, it was satisfying to find a medium where the only rules
are the ones you make for yourself.
You can dye colours you can't find anywhere else. If suddenly I found I could no longer hook
for some sad reason, I would still find much pleasure hovering over a dye-pot.
Design your own patterns or make them up as you go. Borders. No borders. Moulded edges.
Share what you make with others.
