Mum-mers the word!

Joan Foster, a talented local artist from Springdale (NL) is a next generation (mat) hooker who learned the skill from her mother and so on... She deals with all aspects of the craft. ie she hooks,dyes, teaches workshops, sells and designs patterns... Joan is a founding and lifetime member of the Rug Hooking Guild of NL, was project co-ordinator for the 1997 NL Heritage Hooked Mat Registry and has been honoured with many awards for her fine work. The King's Point Pottery Fine Craft Gallery is very excited to be carrying her new hooked 3-d mummer dolls (full of beans), her 2-d mummer doll ornaments for the tree and many other lovely one of a kind hooked items. Joan is in our opinion a provincial living treasure you might just get hooked on!
