With Hooks, Lines and Singers, members of the Five Island Rug Hooking Group have combined their expertise in design, colour, texture and rug hooking techniques with the power of song. This potent combination of creativity has resulted in thirty-five pieces of textile art that have been inspired by the sounds of music, the stories in the lyrics and the emotions evoked by both.

WithHooks, Lines and Singers began as a rug hooking project organized with Fes tival 500 Sharing the Voices to showcase a passion for music and song, for the visual and performing arts, and for the storytelling tradition. The project evolved into a beautiful book that follows the progress of the rugs and tells the stories behind each one.
