Registration of Antique Hand Hooked Mats

The Rug Hooking Guild NL is actively searching out antique hand hooked mats here in the province for registration with the Newfoundland and Labrador Archives.  If you have an old mat hooked by your grandmother, mother, aunt neighbor or friend, please contact us to arrange for the registration.  Simply put, we take pictures of the front and back,  try to determine the backing and the fabrics it was hooked with, and get as much history as we can about the mat and the person who hooked it.   Please help us as we strive to keep this beautiful craft and the role it played in our past alive and well.
