Monday November 21 Hook-In Pinecone workshop The Festive Season has arrived! There was an enthusiastic response to Claire’s idea of a pinecone workshop, the instructions for which appear in the November-December 2022 issue of Rug Hooking magazine. Participants were delighted to each receive a kit, instructions included, carefully prepared by Claire. We simply had to bring glue or a glue gun, sharp scissors, and $5 to cover supplies. Those who had time also made some lavender branches, created in a similar fashion. Wool fabrics were donated by Kitt, Claire, and Dawna. Thank you, Claire, for a wonderful workshop!   Pinecones and branches. Juliet, Barbara, and Carolyn E. Barbara and Carolyn E. Sylvia and Debbie . Karen and Dawna.

Monday Hook-In, October 31st 2022   Halloween 2022        Our Halloween Hook-In had us all in creative costumes from traditional witches to unique Steampunk garb! We also had a paper bag auction featuring some 55 items plus 12 boxes of wool yarns in every colour imaginable. We raised enough money to make donations to both NOVA and to a West Island food bank. Sue made a fabulous chocolate cake to celebrate all birthdays since June. And Chris brought delicious Halloween cookies. Kudos to all who made this possible. Happy Halloween Hookers. Juliet and Fay.
