Robin Whitford

Hooking Outside The Lines

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Robin is a passionate rug hooking artist and Oxford Certified Punch Needle Teacher. Having started her creative journey with yarn at the young age of 6 knitting vests and scarves for her dolls, she has never stopped playing with fibre since. In 2020 she launched her rug hooking business Hooking Outside the Lines and the Creativity Club, an online rug making membership group. Robin loves to help people connect with their inner artist (even it they don’t think they have one!) as well as celebrate all things rug hooking, creativity and community.
Robin teaches from her new home just outside Ottawa Ontario, where she lives with her husband (who can usually be found making craft beer in the garage) and their 3 dogs, since their 2 children have left for University.

Robin is a Certified Oxford Instructor, and a member of The Oxford Punch Needle Instructors Guild (OPNIG), The International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers (TIGHR), the Ontario Hooking Craft Guild (OHCG) and the Rug Hooking Guild of Nova Scotia (RHGNS).
