Punching fun

Punch Needle Rug Hooking Day_By Dawna Matthew

April 13 was Punch Needle Rug Hooking Day and even though we were away in London, Ontario, for the OHCG Annual we managed to get some punching done. Thank you to Christie Beniston for providing the sweet little Busy Bee pattern. Candace, Claire, Dawna, Ti and our friend Iris Simpson joined in the punching fun.

200 Cushions

The Cushion Project: Barachois Historic Church_Grand Barachois, New Brunswick,

By Emmy Maten

The Barachois Historic Church, now a local museum, art gallery, and summer concert venue, commences its 200th year celebrations with “200 Hooked Cushions for my 200th”. The cushions will be permanently exhibited on the old wooden church pews.

The opening exhibition of these donated hooked cushions will be held August 18, during the 2019 World Acadian National Congress. An exposition catalogue will be produced to include photos of the cushions and information about the artisans, their creation, as well as technical details.

Several of our Guild members were very keen to participate in this creative project. Shown here are 6 of our members with their cushions.

Candace also made a cushion, which the Church has already received.
This exhibition is a wonderful reason to visit the Maritimes this summer!
