Olde Forge

Olde Forge Annual Hook-in 

1 April 2017

Respectfully Submitted by Ti Seymour


A large group of BHCG members attended Olde Forge Hook-in and enjoyed the welcoming tones of the violin from resident musician Stewart.  Laughs from the audience came as we fell for an April Fool’s joke, about a new wood frame being donated from a local carpenter.  Lesley Larsen - Convener of 2018 OHCG Annual spoke about members of Area 1 all getting involved to make next years Annual one to remember.  Door prizes and Visitor Basket was raffled.  Multiple vendors selling Rug Hooking and Needle Felting related items.  Lots of lovely sweet and savoury treats for everyone. Show and Tell provided some great inspiration and many ooo’s and ahhh’s.  Photographs of the Show & Tell will be available on Olde Forge’s website.  We look forward to reciprocating their hospitality at our own Picnic on May 27th and again at our Covered Bridges Show in September.
