It’s just a few weeks away! The Ontario Hooking Craft Guilds Annual Conference is Ontario’s largest rug hooking event and one that I look forward to every year. Its a lot of work preparing as a vendor but it is still a weekend away with rug hooking friends and despite the work, it is always a lot of fun. This year is particularly special as it is the 50th Anniversary for this Conference and to make it extra special, its being held at the Deerhurst Resort! Beautiful! This year there are two featured artists, both well deserving of this honor, Diane Ayles and Shirley Lyons. Congrats to both of you! Since the rug display and vendors will be together in one very large room, it will give me an opportunity to get a really good look at all the wonderful rugs. And there will be many to see. If you are not registered for this event, Sunday is open to the public for a 10.00 entrance fee. The display alone is worth the trip and you get the bonus of checking out all the newest goods for sale by all the vendors. I will be featuring rug hooking patterns by Eugenia Koumpouli, Sarah Skrlj and Carla Kumer as well as the studio line. Lots of wool and fibers too. Stop by the booth to see all the newest offerings.
I want to remind everyone that the studio will be closed on Thursday April 28th-May 1st. I will be packing up the place on Thursday and it will be in complete disarray. If you would like to place an order ahead of time to pick up at my booth please contact me soon with your requests. This is the last week for any Beeline orders before the annual. I look forward to seeing you there!
Date: April 29th-May 1st
