Join the OHCG Today!
Join an international network of approximately 1,000 textile artists who share their enthusiasm and experience for the art of traditional rug hooking. New guild members receive a welcome letter with information on hooking schools, events and suppliers.

We can also refer new members to a representative in their area or help locate a teacher or group to hook with.
