The Maine Tin Pedlars group was founded in 1980 as one of the nine local New England chapters of the Association of Traditional Hooking Artists, an international organization dedicated to helping people express themselves through fiber art. The name of the group honors Edward Sands Frost of Biddeford, who, in 1865, was the first to design tin stencils for hooked rug patterns. The group currently boasts over 100 members.
Hooked Rugs by the Maine Tin Pedlars will be on view at the Stonewall Gallery through April 29. The Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10-5.
