Exhibits & Events

Rug Hooking Museum of North America, Queensland, Nova Scotia.

Wondering where Queensland is? It is the community along the oceanside just before Hubbards. The Museum is just outside Hubbards.

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.

Did you see the Eye See You project when it was at the Museum?  Doug hooked one of the rugs in this exhibit. Have you seen the Noah’s Ark? It is a three dimensional hooking project. It is well worth the price of admission just to see this very interesting work.  What do they have this year? Check it out. Each year the Museum focuses on two rug hooking artists and displays rugs hooked by those artists. The Museum also offers an insight into the history of rug hooking through its displays of hooked rugs from the past up to today.

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.  We have been licensed since 1998 to produce patterns based on Maud’s paintings.

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!
