A unique project is currently on display at the Museum of Industry in Stellarton Nova Scotia. The Rug Hooking Guild of Nova Scotia has been inspired to design and create rugs featuring trucks. Old trucks, new trucks, 18-wheelers, fire trucks – all are represented in this engaging show. Some artists have a special connection to a specific truck (or trucker!) in their family and have crafted a suitable tribute. Crafters and hooked rug artists, in particular, will appreciate the level of detail and the quality of the hooking.

The show of rugs is complemented by an array of toy trucks from the Nova Scotia Museum collection and model trucks made available by private collectors and the Nova Scotia Trucking Safety Association. There is something to interest everyone in the family!
