Christmas ornaments
By Ti Seymour The Christmas Tree was a kit purchased from Loretta Moore at https://hookedonthelake.wordpress.com/online-store/
Loretta's palette of primitive colours are divine! The base of the tree was a gift from members of the West Island Woodturners, two of whom came for an Introductory Rug Hooking Class. Such fun trying each other's favourite pastimes. I had the pleasure of trying woodturning and produced a small bowl - a lathe was on my wish list for a short while.












These are pieces that I made for one of our December Intro Workshops. The ornaments were later hung on our Christmas tree at the Beaconsfield Library.

Martintown Wild and Woolly Rug Hookers Hook-InEastern Ontario with Beaconsfield Celebrate the International Day of Rug HookingBy Laura Boszormeny & Dawna Matthew


What a wonderful day! Beaconsfield Hooking Crafters came up with the idea of celebrating our craft with the rest of the hooking community on this special day for all rug hookers worldwide. Martintown Wild and Woolly Rug Hookers provided the venue at the Martintown Community Centre, a central location north of Cornwall. The two branches huddled and organized a terrific day in Area One. There were 30 rug hookers in attendance, both male and female, young and old, with Rideau Valley Boots and Baskets, Prescott Hoops and Hooks and the 1000 Islanders represented as well. The meal was graciously provided by Martintown (4 different soups and rolls) and Beaconsfield (the sweet table), plus plenty of coffee and tea flowing all day to go along with the chatter.
New friends were made and longtime friendships rekindled. Newbies to exp…
