Centennial Hall

Centennial Hall is a cultural center which belongs to the City of Beaconsfield, and we have been fortunate to be allowed to use these magnificent premises in which to host our Guild.

 

Our Story

In 1975 Lois Morris founded the “Lakeshore Woolgatherers Hooking Craft Guild”, subsequently renamed “Beaconsfield Hooking Crafters Guild” and thus began more than 40 years of rug hooking adventures that continue today.

BHCG Visual Identity

Our Logo was created on 2012, inspired by Attic Window, Sylvia Solomon's hooked rug.

In 2015, Lois J. Morris hooked our Emblem using a variation of the 40th Anniversary Logo. Both logos have been designed by Maria Romero.
