This video provides a great overview about rug hooking in 8 minutes!  Everything from transferring a pattern, color planning, and even a bit on dye-work!  Courtesy of Encompassing Designs and Maritime Made.

Cindi Gay's video on what backing to choose for your hooked mat.  Cindy prefers Rug Warp, which is a bit different than most rug hookers in the NW, so choose for yourself after you watch this video.

Another great Cindi Gay video that explains cut sizes.
