This is a rug that was unveiled by two of the organizer. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of this combination rug. It was created by two groups with different ideas but it came together smoothly. A lot of research went into the planning of these rugs. The rug on the left side was to represent all the old traditions of rug hooking, which they called mats, that are registered in the Mat Registry of New Brunswick, and the one on the right was designed by another group to represent the modern tradition of hooking mats. Unfortunately, I didn't write anything down, and will gladly correct the errors as they are pointed to me.
The rug on the left was designed by Allen Tibbets who I met at the St Andrews Rug Hoo-in last fall. A very talented artist.
The partial butterfly was to represent the new rug hooking traditions. These pieces were encased in a frame and will be covered by a piece of plexiglass and will tour New Brunswick. The museum curator was working on a plan to have it on exhibit at a later date. A lot of planning and cooperation went into every phase of this project and I was glad to have had the privilege to have been present at the unveiling.
This is fully accredited Pearl McGowan's teacher, Doris Norman. She was explaining the process of getting this project from the planning stage to completion and the name of those involved. I didn't write any information down.
