BHCG Website Has Been Redesigned

2012 Website Come see our new Website at 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 Rugs (Show & Tell) Gallery: rugs showcased on our Website in the past; Tips: rug hooking tips and techniques.

Lecture by Lois Morris

The Reflection, Transparency and Absorption of Colours by Rose Kandy On March 17, 2012, fifteen or so Beaconsfield Crafters Guild members met at Centennial Hall to attend a talk and overhead presentation given by Lois Morris. Using a variety of pictures, Lois taught us how to study and look intensely at a composition and note all there is to see. In the Fall, Lois Morris will be offering a rug hooking course based on this subject. This should be challenging, but a real learning opportunity.

Show and Tell / March-June 2012

This is a selection of rugs from our September 2010 retrospective exhibition, held at Centennial Hall, to celebrate the Guild’s 35th anniversary. Ailish O'Keeffe Ironman 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 treatments.   She has completed many more Ironmen since then –in Penticton, BC, Montreal, QC Lake Placid, NY,   St.Croix, US Virgin Islands,  Las Vegas,NV,   as well as  marathons, half-marathons, etc.   The rug is a tribute to her accomplishments and I used the logos from  some 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.
