Meetings


Monday Meetings are from 10AM to 3PM, from the beginning of September to the end of May, at Centennial Hall, 288 Beaconsfield Boulevard, Beaconsfield, Quebec.

Saturday Meetings at Le Coin Artisanal from 10AM to 2PM as per Events Calendar.

The Guild provides cutters to be used during the meetings.


Social Events


On Heritage Day, June 24th, in conjunction with the activities organized by the City of Beaconsfield, our guild gives a demonstration of rug hooking. We host a hook-in picnic in the Spring as well as luncheons twice a year.


Fund Raising


From time to time, we auction off wool, kits and other supplies. The items are donated by members or friends of our guild to raise funds for our guild as well as to help various charitable organizations.

Courses and Workshops


Our guild has two experienced teachers: Lois Morris and Judith Dallegret. We try to offer new courses each season. You can learn the different dyeing techniques, how to shade flowers, how to create your own patterns, how to transfer existing patterns to a background, how to finish your work (binding and whipping) and all there is to know about becoming a rug hooking fiber artist.


Exhibition


Every two years in September, we host an exhibition where we display our latest masterpieces. This exhibition is open to the public.

 

Rug Hooking Library


On Monday meetings, members have access to our library in which there is plenty of information about rug hooking. We are subscribed to Rug Hooking Magazine and the Guild continuously upgrades its collection.
