Our goal is to support sharing, inspiration and dialogue
The Guild was originally started to promote rug hooking in Nova Scotia, but today we’ve grown to include New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island as well. Any rug hooker can become a member of the Rug Hooking Guild of Nova Scotia. Currently the guild has over 700 members who represent every province in Canada, as well as members in Bermuda, Japan, Scotland, and the United States. The Guild was formed in 1979 with the first Rug Hooking School held at Church Point 1980. It was later incorporated in 1997 in Nova Scotia.
Even more than an association, the Rug Hooking Guild of Nova Scotia represents a community of engaged members from beginners to lifelong contributors to the art form.
