Come see our new Website at www.beaconsfieldrughooking.com
and browse through the fresh new pages. We took a good look at our old site and came to the
conclusion that after four years, it was time to revamp it. We started by redesigning the header and layout, which
immediately gave a crisp new look to the site. We also took into account
navigation and content to make a more functional and user-friendly Website. Our
new menus allow you to access information quickly. Because the site has grown and
content has been changed, we created an Archive in a blog form where you will
find content of the following pages: News: with
articles and pictures of our past activities;Featured

to time, as we add new tips and techniques and as we transfer past news and
pictures from the new site to the Archive. We hope you will enjoy your visit. We

This is a selection of rugs from our September 2010
retrospective exhibition, held at Centennial Hall, to celebrate the Guild’s
35th anniversary. Ironmanby Ailish O'Keeffe My
daughter Trish is a breast cancer survivor – when she was having chemo
and radiation she decided she needed to have a goal – her goal was to do
the Canadian Ironman – which she did the year after completing her

Penticton, BC, Montreal, QC Lake Placid, NY, St.Croix, US Virgin
Islands, Las Vegas,NV, as well as marathons, half-marathons, etc. The

of her races – including Race Across America (a 3000 mile bicycle race
over 4,800 km). I used number 6 width wool in three shades of grey. For the logos I used the actual colors of each logo.
