Elizabeth LeFort 3

Elizabeth LeFort – Rug Hooker from Cape Breton Island

Elizabeth LeFort was born in 1914, and lived her whole life in Chéticamp, Cape Breton Island – though her rugs travelled the world. She passed away in 2005. She was quite shy, and learned to hook at a very early age, from her mother. She continued to develop her own skills, experimenting with composition and colour. LeFort's process later included hand dyeing all her own colours for designs that she sketched. Initially she worked in landscapes, drawing from existing photographs and illustrations.

Particularly skilled at replicating photographs, LeFort was the first to create highly detailed portraits with wool. She was a prolific hooker and was once timed at pulling 55 loops per minute – that’s 3,300 loops per hour. Her attention to detail and shading made her excel at reproducing photos, and she created an amazing series of portraits.

The Dr. Elizabeth LeFort Gallery, located in Chéticamp, Cape Breton Island, holds the largest collection of her work "Les Trois Pignons" It features Elizabeth’s story and many of her rugs that show her great sense of design and mastery of her craft.
