Olde Forge Hook-In / April 2013



Six BHCG members (Brenda Ticehurst, Lucie Lambert, Lin Watson, Lois Morris, Jeanne Osler and Maria Romero) drove to Ottawa on a sunny and warm day to attend  the Olde Forge's Annual Spring Hook-In for the Ontario Area 1 members.

Upon arrival, each one was given the choice of a piece of spot dyed wool from a selection of four colour schemes. Erin Ryan, President of Old Forge gave us a warm welcome and invited us to partake of the coffee and tea which was available to all throughout the day.

About 80 people hooked, talked, shared tips and ate more delicious goodies served by the Olde Forge members. After lunch, everyone participated in a Show and Tell hosted by Lucie Deschamps. Lois Morris showed a rug she was hooking to go with a Baskets quilt, both of which  will be raffled in May to raise money for the RRA Bursaries for graduates  from the English High School. Tickets were snapped up in record time. The drawing will take place at a Military Whist May 24th.

Vendors Loretta Moore, Christine Gibson and Elaine Tigges had an amazing stock of wools on offer to the great joy of hookers who needed to buy wool or patterns or just could not resist the temptation to add wool to their stashes.

The experience was wonderful and very inspiring. Congratulations to Olde Forge members and special thanks to Erin Ryan who suggested that everyone visit the
Beaconsfield Guild Website.
