Pam Bartlett hails from Loudon, NH. She believes it is important to preserve as many of the traditional arts, crafts and skills that were vital to the comfort and necessity of previous generations. Pam began rug hooking in 1982 with noted instructor Hallie Hall of Contoocook, NH. She is a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen and a certified rug hooking teacher with the Pearl K.
