Marion Brown Rug Hooking Studio

This winter, we visited the studio of Marion Brown Rug Hooking in Belfast, Maine. The studio is located just beyond downtown in a large red and white building called The Belfast Center. Here, Marion has created a warm, cozy haven for rug hookers to convene, learn and share. The large sunny rooms are filled with bolts of wool, hand-dyed fabrics, inspirational books and magazines, tapes and supplies, and Marion’s unique pin cushion collection. Finished hooked rugs grace the walls, piles of color-sorted wools interspersed with collectibles fill many  shelves, and an old Singer sewing machine stands ready for use. The studio includes a separate dye kitchen for experimentation, a large table and chair to facilitate study, and a comfy couch and sitting area for guests. A group of rug hookers, knitters and craft enthusiasts meets weekly. Contact Marion for details or to arrange a visit. Physical Address: Marion Brown Rug Hooking, Studio 340, The Belfast Center, 9 Field Street, Belfast, ME 04915; 207-522-5348. Mailing address: PO Box 303, Belfast, ME 04915
