Thrift stores and closets provide the material for the the beautiful hooked rugs created by folk artist Prudence Matthews. Folklorist Hannah Harvester visited Prudence to learn about how the 1000 Islands region has inspired her work. This story is part of a collaboration between Mountain Lake PBS and TAUNY, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York (tauny.org). Funding for this segment was provided by the Folk And Traditional Arts program at the National Endowment for the Arts.
