Protecting Our Legacy
New Brunswick mat hookers have talked for years about the importance of documenting the hooked mats that cover the floors of New Brunswick homes. These are mats made by our grandmothers, mothers and friends to keep their families warm and bring colour into their homes. A network of volunteers from all regions of the province has created a New Brunswick Mat Registry to document these mats and to preserve the stories behind them.
