President's Message _ 2008


President 's message
Denise Vandenbemden

Our Web site has been created because the time has come to take our Guild into the 21st century and because rug hooking is a beautiful and artistic way of recycling. It is an old craft from a time when recycling was done out of need. It is a craft that should be kept alive because it is not only useful, but it has also evolved into an enjoyable fiber art.

This craft or art is ideal for anyone, especially young retirees who want to live a fulfilling and active live, learning, socializing and creating something beautiful and useful with their own hands. 

You don't need any special or artistic skills and anyone can do it. Don't worry if you don't have a creative mind; there is a wide choice of free copyright rug hooking patterns available to be used as well as a lot of help ideas to be had from the new friends you will make in our Guild.  

Through our website, we aim to make this craft more accessible to the public and get you hooked on hooking!
