New Brunswick Hooked Rug Registry
New Brunswick is developing a registry of hooked rugs 25 years and older in the province. You can read an article, "Our Hooked History" on the Telegraph Journal website, which describes the source fibres and natural dyes used and gives some stories about the origins of designs. No word if handspun is used in any of the rugs, but interesting reading. The registry's website contains little actual information on the rugs; it's more a call for people to register. The article and the CBC article, "Hooked Rug Registry Planned for N.B." states that there are registries already for every other Atlantic province but unfortunately they do not provide links.
