Hook-In June 13th

Our first hook-in of the 2015 season was a great day which started out with heavy rain and ended hot and sunny.  It was great to see many of our old friends from last year as well as welcome new rug hookers to the 

museum.  So much beautiful work to be seen! Collage on the right are our door prize winners (with presenter and volunteer Joan Sponagle).

















Proddy Flowers Workshop - June 11th

When I arrived at the museum to take photos to add to the website of the Proddy Workshop I had never seen so many rug hookers so intent on what they were doing.  The results were beautiful and I think everyone was very happy with their very productive day.  Many thanks to Leanne Sitler, Connie Bateman, and Janice Buckingham who came up from Pennsylvania to put on this workshop for us.  Here are a few photo collages from the workshop.

On March 27th we held an off-site hooking event at Cameron Hall, Parkland (senior complex).  It was a fun day as we were joined by residents of Cameron Hall and adjoining buildings, many of whom had enjoyed hooking, knitting, needle point and other handwork.

Following are some photos from the event.

Meet Bernice Robertson who dropped in for a day 

of hooking.  Bernice moved to Nova Scotia in 2009

from Ontario where she used to hook in the

Gravenhurst area.  She was happy to find fellow

hooker Barb nearby when she moved to Lower

Sackville.   She came to the hook-in with her

neighbour and friend Barb, right.

Edna Emms, formerly from Chester, was happy to see the "Publicover girls", Cheryl (Schnare) and Susan (Lord).

She is a resident of Cameron Hall and brought a few of her originally designed hooked pieces for us to see.
