Laura Kenney was born in Moose Jaw, Kenney began rug hooking when she moved to Truro, NS in 1998. She took classes with the Rug Hooking Guild of Nova in Truro which gave her a good basis in rug hooking. Her work has been represented by the Nova Scotia Folk Art Festival since 2009.
It was quite a year for the women's movement with the march and #metoo. I was curious to know if rug hookers were engaged and whether the topic was showing up in their work..and the answer is.. YES. They are indeed using their voices, and they don't need a pattern to tell them what to say...bravo. #WomensMarch#metoo #nopatterns

Rug hookers..if you are interested in hooking a rug related to the women's march and/or the #metoo movement...can you email me..thanks!
I thought it would be cool to have an online show of rugs on the anniversary of the march..Jan 21...not a lot of time..but I think hookers are up to the challenge. Please send me an image of your rug by Jan 19th/2018 and will post on my fb page and website. Lkenneyrugs@gmail.com
