Braiding Rugs



A teacher is born
by Louise G. de Tonnancour 

On  Monday, March 30th 2009 a group of rug hookers met at 10:00am at Centennial Hall in Beaconsfield for a workshop on braiding rugs given by Brenda Ticehurst.  There was a lot of  excitement in the air and we just couldn’t wait to start. Our teacher was very well prepared.  In a matter of minutes, we all received a kit with clamps, needles, wool strips and a “How To” booklet that she had put together especially for us.  With a smiling face and a lot of patience she guided each and every one of us through the different steps.  It was a first and very successful experience for Brenda, as a teacher, whose love for braided rugs is very contagious.  Thank you Brenda, for a wonderful day and a job well done!
