I have done them in the past. There is no place here to buy the supplies anymore.

Years ago I did the latch hook that is a grandfather clock. I still have it and have trouble getting rid of it. We have a real grandfather clock now so we will never hang my latch hook again. That closet has to be cleaned soon.
I purchased stuff to make rugs from fabric. It was called something similar to latch hook. I haven't begun.

I used to do both last hook and needle punch rugs they were fun and now want to show my granddaughters how to do it but I live in a rural area with no such things around here.

I have done them in the past but not lately. I have a latch hook wall hanging in my sewing room.

Mary Maxim catalog still has supplies.

I did a couple latch hooks when I was younger, and then my brother gave me a massive one that's been a UFO for about twelve years now (which is impressive since I'm only 23). I drag it out every once in a while and do a couple of rows.

I used to do it - 25 years ago. It was fun, but could be very expensive if you didn't buy the kit. I went so far as to cut my own pieces for a while, but it was time consuming. Then it just started to disappear. I am not an artist so unable to draw my own.

Noticed them in catalogues once in a while.
