W. Cushing & Company has been making and selling Cushing's "Perfection" Dyes in Maine since 1879. Their synthetic dyes are beloved by generations of dyers. For more than 50 years they have also had a special focus on rug hooking. After 1968, Joan and Bob Moshimer built this company into a complete source of rug hooking supplies. They import specially made backing cloths from Scotland. They have thousands of printed patterns available- by E.S. Frost who printed the first commercial patterns in Maine more than 100 years ago; by Joan Moshimer, Pearl McGown, Ruth Hall, Anita Allen, Ralph Burnham and others. They offer a thorough selection of equipment, wool, specially dyed swatches and hooked rug kits.
