Annie Hayes began designing and making primitive hooked rugs more than a dozen years ago. Relying on her drawing and painting practice, she applied herself to learning the techniques needed to create beautiful, long-lasting family treasures for collectors across the country. Her collectors regularly commission rugs for their country homes and city apartments, enjoying pieces that have personal meaning to them.
Hayes routinely dyes her wool to produce both the subtle and brilliant fabrics found in her rugs. In addition to making rugs for the floor or to hang on the wall, she makes floor runners, chair pads, footstools with hooked tops, table decorations, holiday ornaments, and greeting cards based on her images. Although animals dominate her work, she also loves making rugs with geometric designs.
In order to introduce her craft to more people, Hayes offers rug-making workshops locally and nationally, guiding her students in exploring their own designs and translating them into their rugs. She participates in invitational exhibits that feature both the utilitarian and artistic aspects of primitive hooked rugs.
