Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival 2018
“Art Under Foot” – A Display of Hooked Rugs

Coordinated by the
Cream City Rug Hooking Guild
Friday - Saturday - Sunday – Activity Center

The Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival is privileged to again welcome the return of the Cream City Rug Hooking Guild and an impressive display of handcrafted rugs, ‘Art Under Foot’. The rugs and mats vary from primitive to modern, small to large. The Cream City Rug Hooking Guild was formed to develop interest in rug hooking and encourage creativity and high standards in the art form of traditional rug hooking. The guild provides an environment in which our members, new to hooking or founding members, can improve their hooking skills, exchange ideas and enjoy socializing. The sixty plus guild members from the greater Milwaukee area help to increase the knowledge and quality of rug hooking by demonstrating the art as well as planning educational activities. Guild members meet twice a month and have workshops twice a year. Members will be demonstrating at the ‘Art Under Foot’ display throughout the festival. This year our special display will be “Song Titles.” Guild members created a hooked mat, 12 inches square, depicting the title of the song. The title of the song could not be written on the front of the mat. It is exciting  to “guess” the song title from the hooked picture. Songs include a variety of old favorites, country, religious, and musicals. Come and see how many titles you can figure out! For additional information email: Or check out our web site at
