Artisan exhibition: hooked cushions
September 10, 2019 - September 14, 2019
the hooked cushions of Barachois
A stunning exhibition of 242cushions covered in hooked-rug artistry is coming to PEI. These cushions have been contributed by artisans from all over North America, even the UK and the United Arab Emirates.

The show is sponsored by PEI’s Island Matters rug-hooking group. It’s a kaleidoscope of creative colour.
See these cushions on the pews of the Kirk of St. James, on Pownal Street in Charlottetown — Tuesday to Saturday, September 10th to 14th, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm (till 7:00 pm on Friday).
Admission is just $5 at-the-door.
