An Auspicious Day

Yes, it is our anniversary today, so that makes it auspicious, but I am actually referring to the Rug Hooking Museum of North America which is holding opening ceremonies this afternoon.  Located in Hubbards, Nova Scotia, the museum is the brainchild of Suzanne and Hugh Conrad.  They have been working diligently for year to amass the collection and to find and outfit an appropriate building.  Mary Sheppard-Burton's Noah's Ark is permanently housed in the museum, along with a large selection of Garrett's patterns and stencils and a whole lot of beautiful hand-hooked rugs.  There are even rugs for sale in the museum market place.

Very exciting day for rug hookers everywhere!

Can you tell me anything about a rug museum in Toronto?

My husband was even talking about it this morning, he heard it on the radio and came to tell me.

I hope that you had a great anniversary.
