Olde Forge / April 2013

Olde Forge Hook-In
Six BHCG members (Brenda Ticehurst, Lucie Lambert, Lin Watson, Lois Morris, Jeanne Osler and Maria Romero) drove to Ottawa on a sunny and warm day to attend  the Olde Forge's Annual Spring Hook-In for the Ontario Area 1 members.

Upon arrival, each one was given the choice of a piece of spot dyed wool from a selection of four colour schemes. Erin Ryan, President of Old Forge gave us a warm welcome and invited us to partake of the coffee and tea which was available to all throughout the day.
About 80 people hooked, talked, shared tips and ate more delicious goodies served by the Olde Forge members. After lunch, everyone participated in a Show and Tell hosted by Lucie Deschamps. Lois Morris showed a rug she was hooking to go with a Baskets quilt, both of which  will be raffled in May to raise money for the RRA Bursaries for graduates  from the EnglishHigh School. Tickets were snapped up in record time. The drawing will take place at a Military Whist May 24th.

On this Gallery, you can tour a selection of rugs from our September 2012 exhibition, held at the Beaconsfield Library.

Thistle and Goldenrod by Kay Cousineau
This piece was hooked and carved during a workshop given in May 1984 by Joan Boyle, an artist and teacher from Ontario. As this was a one-day workshop,  all the dyed wool and material was supplied by the teacher. The wool was cut in #3.








Mushrooms  by Denise Morissette
This rug was hooked during a workshop on sculpting. I attended the classes given by Lois Morris who furnished all the material we needed. The wool was cut in #3. After hooking the mushrooms, I chose to do the background in dark green wool, cut #5. The piece measures 14" x 11".
I liked doing this type of hooking and, at the moment, I am working on a Still Life sculpted piece.
