Cobourg Show by Lois Morris, Teacher and Founder of the Guild
On April 30th, Louise and I went to Cobourg to attend the Ontario Hooking Craft Guild Annual Meeting and Show. It was a busy weekend. Friday afternoon, Louise and I set up the Beaconsfield Guild display of 17 beautiful hooked rugs and wall hangings done by the 8 members of our group who also belong to the Ontario Guild. There were hundreds of pieces on display and most were to be judged in one of the 13 categories of hooking. There was a lot of  camaraderie and many mini-workshops to attend. Great fun for all.
Saturday morning, the breakfast and annual meeting were held in the hotel ballroom. The prizes were awarded at this breakfast and our guild had a winner.

Olde Forge 2010

Olde Forge by Denise Vandenbemden
Once again we were invited and attended the annual April hook-in hosted by the Ottawa Olde Forge Branch of the Ontario Rug Hooking Guild. Seventy persons socialized, hooked, laughed, and ate too much from the delicious and overflowing dessert buffet. Great friendship, great pieces and beautiful material offered by the vendors. The show and tell was pure pleasure. Many rug hookers are blessed with a great sense of humor and the stories behind their work were often very funny. The organizers did a wonderful job. Everything was perfect. We had a most enjoyable day. Thank you and congratulations to the committee and members of the Olde Forge.
