Home of the Bluenose Rug Hooking Pattern

We feature the Bluenose Rug Hooking Patterns. These patterns were printed and distributed throughout the 1900s by Garrett's in New Glasgow and we are endeavoring to bring them back into circulation and to preserve this important part of rug hooking heritage.

In 1998, Linda MacDonald, owner of Rags to Rugs, acquired the Bluenose Rug Hooking Patterns. This collection of designs was created by the Garretts of New Glasgow throughout the 1900s for distribution across North America and Britain. At the time they were acquired by Linda, these patterns had been sitting in the basement of Garrett's by the Bridge in New Glasgow for quite some time. They were in the form of perforated paper stencils stained with black ink. As you can imagine, the task of cleaning the stencils of dirt and dust, then transferring them to a usable form is very time consuming. More on the process of cleaning the stencils and burlap matbacks.

To date, we have prepared over 100 patterns for distribution.
