From its beginning, it has been a craft rooted in practicality. But like many home crafts, it was too humble to boast of a single creator or inventor. Most people did it, because it was useful and it provided a creative outlet. According to art historian, William Winthrop Kent, it was started by weavers who wanted to find a use for the warp threads thrums that got cut off the loom after the fabric was woven.
Kent then went on the theorize that the reason it seemed to be everywhere was because sailors took up the craft. It was a great way to pass the time on long voyages and it didn't take up space on a cramped ship. Among the other things sailors shared in ports of call, the craft became popular for that reason.
At the time, woven cloth was far too valuable to cut up into strips to hook into rugs, but nothing went to waste. When the pattern pieces were cut out, the remnants could be cut up for hooking, or if a woolen garment got worn out, that could go into a rug, too.
Again, the craft was all about what's practical. You use what you've got. Then a funny thing happened. Europeans started migrating to North America, and suddenly this eminently useful and practical craft surged in popularity.
There were homes to be furnished, and since all they needed was a simple hook, yarn everyone spun in those days and feed sacks, the craft took off in a big way. It wasn't just practical. I believe that the type of folks who went out into the wilderness to build a life from scratch were really very creative. The craft must have appealed to them because of the creative expression it offered. Then the Industrial Revolution made its way to our continent, and crafts like spinning and rug hooking started to wane.
At that time, very few people were spinning yarn. Manufacturers started churning out acryllic yarns, which were okay for some things, but weren't preferred by the rug hooking teachers of the day, like Pearl McGown. Hooking with strips of woolen fabric became the style, and has remained prominent until recently.

An earlier article in the same newspaper rebutted an attack on the behaviour of American girls made recently in the Cosmopolitan by Elinor Glyn. It admitted the existence of petting parties but considered the activities were no worse than those which had gone on in earlier times under the guise of "kissing games", adding that tales of what occurred at such events were likely to be exaggerated by an older generation influenced by traditional misogyny: From Front Porch to Back Seat: Courtship in Twentieth-Century America.
