McGown Home

Welcome to the National Guild of the Pearl McGown Hookrafters! If you aren’t new to the craft of rug hooking, you may have already heard of us, but if you are a new rug hooker, or just enjoy crafts, then come take a look at what Traditional Rug hooking is all about. On this site you will find links to the stores that sell supplies for rug hooking, and everything you will need for fine and primitive crafting.

You will also find links to the McGown guilds and schools around the world. This is the only site where you can actually find a teacher and contact them by phone or e-mail address. By having the McGown certification you are assured that their expertise is proven and an accumulation of both experience and tradition.

Mission Statement:

The purpose of the National Guild of Pearl K. McGown Hookrafters Inc. is to educate and inform the public about the craft of rug hooking. We hope that you will enjoy exploring more information about the craft.
