Beaconsfield Artisans' Fair

BHCG Participates in the Beaconsfield Artisans’ Fair     By Chris Delaney    On Saturday, September 24th, the Beaconsfield Hooking Crafters Guild was represented at the Artisans’ Fair held on the grounds of Centennial Hall. Mary was there with a variety of things to sell in her continued fundraising efforts for the Ukraine. Her scarves were a big hit. Claire also brought along some wonderful crafts including her fab brooches, slippers, and small baskets. Kitt dropped by with her material pumpkins. Helen and Chris brought rugs and though many did not sell, there was much interest in the guild and the art of rug hooking and punch needle. Perhaps some will even visit us on a Monday. Others in the guild dropped by to enjoy the beautiful day. We saw Maureen, Lin, Barbara, and Leslie, and Debbie also came by to help us pass the time. It was a wonderful day spent in good company. Chris and Helen converse with visitors. Mary continues to crochet her fundraiser scarves. Chris is ready to demons

Roxham Woolgathering

A visit to the Roxham Woolgathering    After a couple of cancelled years, the Roxham Woolgathering was back last weekend, this time at a new location, the Pinehill Sheep farm in Hemmingford. (They have a few llamas too!) It was a delightful outing, and the weather was perfect both days. Numerous BHCG members visited throughout the weekend. A few sheep seen outside the barn. Set up under a canopy of trees, each booth presented unique and beautiful crafts done by local artists. This was Isabelle and Jacques’ first time as vendors and their booth was very popular. It was also nice to see Jane and Mary from Martintown Wild and Woollys with their lovely hooked, felted, and quilted crafts. Jane and Mary’s booth is seen here on this welcoming veranda.
