15 Years

Our BHCG website is 15 Years on the Net! 15 Years On The Web!. Illustration: Maria Romero. I really got to know Maria when working with her for our 45th anniversary celebrations, all done virtually on our website throughout 2020, with 85 posts exhibiting many of our Guild members’ talents. Maria is meticulous and has endless energy, enthusiasm, ideas, and creativity, not to mention a heart of gold! To mark our website’s 15 years on the Web, we would like to celebrate Maria, who dreamed it all and made it a reality.  With sincerity and respect, Emmy Maten /  President Meet Maria, our webmaster Maria’s story starts in Venezuela, her country of origin. She studied Visual Arts, earned a diploma, and taught Drawing and Art History to Graphic Design students at the University. In 2001, she emigrated to Canada, making Dorval her new home at the time. In 2004, when driving her visiting relatives along the beautiful Lac St Louis lakeshore, they happened upon a sign announcing a BHCG rug exhibit
