Fête Nationale

Rug Hooking - Beaconsfield Hooking Crafters Guild


Fête Nationale in Beaconsfield
Linda Henderson

Beaconsfield annual Fête Nationale celebration on June 24, 2014 was scheduled to take place on the beautiful grounds of Centennial Hall but torrents of rain moved the event indoors to the Recreation Centre. Despite the weather, the event was well attended by hundreds of people who seemed to delight in the many attractions and entertainment – with a special focus on children.

Beaconsfield Hooking Crafters Guild joined a gallery of artisans that included quilters, wood turners and food specialists. Many guild members braved the weather and were there to demonstrate rug hooking and show their favourite hooking projects. The BHCG booth enjoyed many visitors who were both intrigued and admiring of the craft and our display. A number of our sunflowers were sold and a few people signed up to become members or to try an introductory lesson.

We were proud to take part in the Fête celebrations and present an ancestral Quebec craft.
