Laurie has been hooking for over 16 years. She is a certified McGown teacher and is active with the Edmonton Rug

Hooking Guild. Laurie is comfortable with both wide and narrow cuts. Animals and self-designed pieces are her

favorite things to teach; fancy stitches and alternative fabrics are fun, too. She loves all aspects of hooking from

design to finishing.

Laurie has rugs displayed in Canada, the U.S. And Iceland. The Royal Museum of Alberta bought one of Laurie’s

pieces earlier this year. Recently Laurie spent a month in Iceland as an artist-in-residence.
