This study examines mat hooking traditions in central Nova Scotia over a span of seventy years, 1915-1985. Examination of one craft's historic and present state in a specific geographic region provides information about the effects of social and economic change on the craft's forms and functions. By focusing on the maker, as well as the artifact, one discerns a relationship between group aesthetics and individual preference, and craft production's role and function in the maker's life. These two factors exert influence on each other.
