Rug Hooking Museum of North America, Queensland, Nova Scotia
Now open - check the website for times and events
Wondering where Queensland is? It is the community along the
oceanside just before Hubbards. The Museum is just outside
The Museum offers an interesting display of hooked rugs from
the past as well as recently hooked designs. Every year
there are new displays as well as workshops. When they have
workshops, they provide an amazing lunch. Linda, and her
committee, make a great variety of delicious luncheon items
so that it impossible to walk away hungry. These women are
all volunteers and deserve thanks for all the time they
devote to the Museum.
Last year, the Tarot Card
Exhibit was on display. Hope you did not miss it! Doug
hooked one of the rugs in this exhibit. Another year, they
had an interesting display by a friend of ours from Japan.
What do they have this year? Check it out.
The Museum sells our smaller Maud Lewis patterns. If you
are interested in one of the Maud Lewis patterns, please
purchase it from the Museum when you are visiting as these
patterns are a valuable contribution toward their bottom
line and we are pleased we are able to supply them.
If you have not been to the Museum, you should put
it on your bucket list. There are lots of very interesting
things to see whether or not you are a rug hooker. You
really do not want to miss the fabulous Noah's Ark!

my booth. I can't thank her enough!! Thanks again Cathy! I

time she has won and had a rug displayed. Cathy is a McGown
certified teacher from California. She hooks beautiful rugs
but most of all, she is a wonderful, kind and generous
