45th Aniversary Celebrations

Conclusion of BHCG’s 45th Anniversary Celebrations    Matty - BHCG Virtual Celebrations*. Illustration: Maria Romero, 2021. Dear Beaconsfield Hooking Crafters Guild members, Friends and Followers, Our 45th Anniversary virtual celebrations have reached their completion with Gallery 6 and our Christmas and New Year’s wishes to you all. This celebration would not have been possible were it not for the exceptionally talented and prolific members of the Beaconsfield Hooking Crafters Guild. So many beautiful rugs and stories to admire. While a rug exhibition is admired for three days, our virtual celebration has carried us through four months of admiration! And what a better way to distract us from this difficult and challenging pandemic year. We are grateful to all our featured artists and their families who gathered the rug stories. Thank-you to the City of Beaconsfield, the West Island Blog, the Suburban, and the Montreal Gazette West Island Community Calendar for advertising our event. T

Show & Tell / January 2021

Featured Rugs Gallery       In this Gallery, you can tour a selection of rugs from our last Exhibition, held in September 2017 at Centennial Hall. Visit our Blog to see the rugs showcased in the past.    Show & Tell : Winter Scenes Winter can bring frigid north winds and icy streets, yet also, the pristine beauty of freshly fallen snow, delighting the artist in us all. Snow crystals reflect surrounding light and colours, creating shadows of blue or green or even pink. Winter scenes depicting homes conjure up feelings of coziness and refuge from the cold, while horses and sleighs bring back vivid images of action and power. No wonder winter scenes are so inspiring.
