     The Quoddy Loopers group hooked the rug, " Cottage Craft Shop", (above) to donate to the Ross Memorial Museum for their special show honouring Helen Grace Mowat and the Making of the Cottage Craft 9014 - 2014.  

     Helen Mowat started the Cottage Craft to give the rural women of Charlotte County, New Brunswick an opportunity to earn an income from their craft - knitting, weaving and rug hooking.
