Newspaper article on Helen King the author of a book on rug hooking

A newspaper article on Helen King the author of a book on rug hooking.  The article is titled “Helen King’s New Book is Making History,” and was written by Edwina Cook.  Helen King was a talented artist who created her own designs of hooked rugs.  She was widely known and received letters from around the world.  Her book was written in a different manner than the standard rug hooking books which used illustrations of the finished rugs.  She didn’t use the pattern as a whole but rather concentrated on the components of the design.    This document is part of the Rutherford Collection at Old Independence Regional Museum.
