Presentation to the Knitting Guild


By Ti Seymour and Riitta Jackson


The Knitting Guild recently invited us to give a talk on Tuesday 14th January about Rug Hooking at their Monthly Meeting.    There were 20 knitters present. Candace Fradette kindly introduced us and we kicked off the evening with information about the Guild, followed by a very interesting account of the history of rug hooking.  We also talked about the varying styles, techniques and textiles as we passed around hooked pieces for everyone to examine.  Afterwards the knitters watched a "hooking" demonstration and were then welcome to try it for themselves.  Riitta had hooked a mug rug and Claire Fradette had hooked a pot holder to donate to the Knitter's monthly draw.  The lucky winners were very happy with their gifts.  Interest was generated about rug hooking and two lovely ladies signed up for receiving notification about the next Introduction to Rug Hooking course.  At the end of the presentation, the knitters got to handle other hooked pieces too large to pass around, ask questions and take a bookmark.  We thank the members of the Knitting Guild for the invitation and their genuine interest to our presentation and hope we may find a way to come together again.
