Dwight Gallagher  - has been rug hooking for over twenty years and finds it a source of enjoyment, a type of therapy giving him an opportunity to express his creativity.  Presently his main focus is landscapes and making them look realistic.  Dwight is a member of the Rug hooking Guild of Nova Scotia (RHGNS), having acted as Regional Director; serving six years on the RHGNS Executive and a term as RHGNS Rug School Director.  In 2019 Dwight received his RHGNS Teacher’s Certificate and feels we should be constantly learning something new with rug hooking.   He has taught classes at the RHGNS Rug School and elsewhere in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and has judged rugs at various Exhibitions.   Dwight dyes wool, creates patterns and bargain shops for recycled wool. When not rug hooking, Dwight likes to spend  time with his wife Linda and their three grandchildren.


Blueberry fields turn a brilliant colour in the autumn after they are harvested.  Usually there is a lane or path leading into the back fields allowing the harvesters excess.  You will be hooking a 16” x 21” piece using these glorious colours !    You can bring your own pattern on backing and wool/yarn of your own colour choice to class if you desire.


Bring along any embellishments you plan to use, for example – broken jewellery, beads, braid, etc.


Dwight can send you a pattern (paper/electronic – cost $10.00 ).  You can also purchase direct form Dwight -  linen @ $45.00 and wool to complete the pattern $85.00.   There is also wool available for purchase at the Museum.  To purchase pattern, linen or wool, email Dwight at:
