New Brunswick Covered Bridge Project

Several members answered the call by Pat Neill to hook rugs depicting New Brunswick Covered Bridges. Some hooked bridges from their local area and others hooked bridges that represented something to them.
The rugs have been donated to the Rug Hooking Museum of North America in Nova Scotia.
Canal Bridge is located on the St. George end of the Quoddy Loop.  This is the bridge hooked by the Quoddy Loopers Group.  The Canal Bridge suffered some damage in the last year or so and we are happy to say that it has been repaired and is still a treat to drive through.

Sandra Lewis chose the McGuire Bridge that is located in  Elmsville.  It is located in a northern direction from St. Andrews as is the Digdequash McCann Bridge hooked by Maureen McIlwan.  Both of these bridges span the Digdequash River and are still standing.

I chose to hook the Linton Stream Bridge which is located in Bonny River.  As I child I spent time at my Aunt and Uncle's house which was located right beside the bridge.
As a child my Mother earned money in the winter by shoveling snow into the bridge so the sleighs could travel through.  Sadly this bridge has been gone for a long time.
