Today was our first hook-in of the year! A small group gathered to open the 2019-2020 season.
The members who signed up today received a Tapissiers de Saint Henri Rug Hookers Members card and a beautiful little croctehed heart made by our own Yanick. We had a small but great launch to the year. Welcome to a new member, Leslie!

Westport Hook-in

Helen Radford and I attended the Westport Hook-in held on July 2nd in Westport, Ontario recently. As we were visiting Gord and Loretta Moore for the week,we didn't have to travel far. However Candace Fradette ( a Beaconsfield member as well as Martintown) and a gang from Martintown made the trip for the day. Altough a little steamy, it was a great day!



September 2019 to May 2020 Rug Hooking Dates

The schedule for next year is set. Generally we meet every second Saturday of the month but some dates have been shifted due to holidays. Keep these dates open!
