St. Patrick’s Day

Green Day_By Emmy Maten

On Monday, March 18, we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day. We dressed in green, everyone won a green door prize, and there was a pot of “gold” for 1 lucky winner!

As always, we shared rug hooking ideas and continued working on our beautiful projects.

We also sang “Happy Birthday” to Brenda who is not only truly Irish, but also born on St Patrick’s Day!

Abu Dhabi Demo

Demo at the Abu Dhabi Quilting Guild_By Dawna Matthew

Abu Dhabi ,United Arab Emirates March 14th, 2019

Our past president, Ti Seymour, spends her time between her homes here in Beaconsfield and Abu Dhabi. In March three of our members went to visit and were invited to attend a meeting of the Abu Dhabi Quilting Guild and demonstrate our techniques. We were amazed at the interest shown in both rug hooking and Oxford Needle Punch work. Ti will have to get a group, “The Abu Dhabi Rug Hookers and Punchers” started!!

Searsport Hook-in

Searsport Punta Gorda Hook-In_By Dawna Matthew

Punta Gorda, Florida, Feb. 26-28, 2019

In February members Candace, Claire and Dawna travelled down to Punta Gorda, Florida for the Searsport Hook-In. They were fortunate to take a workshop with Winnie Glavine where they worked on creating mittens using her technique of hooking with tee shirt material. There was a huge hook-in area surrounded by vendors, tons of door prizes and various mini workshops and talks on offer.
