OHCG ANNUAL IN COBOURG…

was absolutely wonderful! The venue for the rugs and vendors was big, bright and spacious – and beautifully set up. Our dinner/theatre evening Saturday was such fun – delicious food (always very important) and the performance (Forever Plaid) was hilarious and spoke especially to those of us of a certain age! The ladies in Cobourg did an amazing job organizing this annual – everything went smoothly all weekend long. Thank you and congratulations on a job well done! In between selling and schmoozing I (well actually Gord!) did manage to get pix of some of the rugs – I wish we could have taken a picture of every rug that was on display but that was just not going to happen. So what we did try to do was take pix of rugs that would give you an idea of the variety of styles, colours, cuts and techniques and alternative fibres to inspire and excite you. So over the next few days, as I get time to clean up and figure out names of rugs, hookers and designers I will post the pix we did take…

If you have never been to one of the OHCG annuals you are missing a fabulous weekend. Next year the Ottawa guild will be hosting the annual the weekend of May 5 – 6. It promises to be another outstanding event!

At the same time as the annual conference another display was being held at the Art Gallery Northumberland in Cobourg. This gallery is housed in the beautiful Victoria Hall building on the main street. Sadly both displays ended yesterday but I did get a few pictures at this one as well which I will post today. We tried to get the tag with the name of the rughooker and designer – I hope you can zoom in on these 🙂 .

  3. Loretta, I was so delighted to see Ann Hallet’s Vimy Ridge rug. She is a member of our group, and I watched her working on it, but never saw it completed. It was sent immediately to a large cathedral in Toronto for display (I’ve forgotten which one). As she explained the story behind it, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. I wrote a blog about it at the time, and now seeing it completed is most satisfying .
