Xmas Themed Classes / November 1st, 2014

At Le Coin Artisanal

A very busy day for BHCG.  Firstly the start of our Xmas Themed Classes which run over 3 dates in November - 1st, 15th and 29th.  Linda Henderson had successfully promoted the classes to the West Island Woodturners, which drew 2 turners to the first class.

 Plus another participant signed up at LCA after seeing the mug rugs on display.  Both the turners finished their mug rugs and Mona took her 2 mugs and tray to finish at home.

BHCG wish to thank Fred - WIW turner, for providing the beautiful base/spindle which Dawna will be using for her tree.

Thanks Fred!

Interestingly, Bob - WIW turner, brought along a piece his 96 year old mother had hooked some time ago for us all to appreciate.  After hooking his own coaster, he had a whole new appreciation and respect for his mothers craft.

 Also in the room on another table sat members of the Guild who either worked on their own piece or a Christmas Tree design.  Some of whom took a walk to Rosie's Animal Adoption Craft Sale in the Village and returned with some beautiful gifts.

The public visiting the store were attracted by the obvious fun and giggles in the back and came to check it out.  All were provided with Guild bookmarks and encouraged to try a class - one gentleman got chatting with the turners and showed interest in checking out WIW and his wife was interested in our Guild.

All in all a great day at Le Coin Artisanal.
