Suggestion de sortie pour la fin de semaine Posted on 26 septembre 2017 by Pascal



La Guilde de tapis crocheté de Beaconsfield organise une exposition la fin de semaine prochaine et le sujet nous rejoint particulièrement puisqu’il s’agit des ponts couverts. Ainsi, les membres du club exposeront leurs oeuvres montrant différents ponts couverts. Quelle idée géniale! Chaque tapis doit représenter des heures de travail incalculables. En introduction, Dawna Matthew nous présente le pont Prud’homme alors que son tapis était en pleine production, donc pas encore terminé. Je me demande bien quels autres ponts ont inspiré les artistes. Voilà donc une belle idée de sortie pour la fin de semaine, et tout près de Montréal.

Rug Hooking is alive!

Arts Alive! QuébecBy Dawna Matthew

This year’s Arts Alive! Québec event was held at St. John Fisher Junior School in Pointe Claire on Saturday, September 23 and Sunday, September 24. The guild participated on Saturday with a display of rugs, vending of our beautiful cards, promotion of our upcoming exhibition and beginners’ class. In the afternoon we offered a mini workshop where participants could hook simple designs which would be incorporated into greeting cards. As it turned out most of our workshop participants were quite young and the task may have been above them but willing mums lent their hands and everyone had fun and went away with a smile and a small piece of rug hooking in hand.

Four of our members were fortunate to take a Fine Shading Class with Carol Shewan this summer. This class was part of the requirements for the OHCG Teacher Training Certification. Together with members from other Area 1 branches two 2 day sessions were spent with Carol,  mastering the technique. It was great fun to get together with fellow hookers from other guilds, and yes,  it was definitely fine shading by day and some wine shading at night!!!
