Sarah Leighton is a Maine fiber artist and rug hooker following in her grandmother's footsteps. Initially a primitive rug hooker, Sarah's style is now more contemporary, incorporating a variety of materials into her pieces including wool cloth, yarn, velvet, and sari ribbon to give her pieces more texture.
Marion Brown has been rug hooking for 30 years. She has enjoyed opportunities to study with many teachers. She enjoys teaching students, dyeing wool, and spending time in her studio at the Belfast Center. Her focus has been wide cut primitive rug hooking, and presently has branched out into using brighter colors and more contemporary patterns.
