The Beaconsfield Hooking Crafters Guild is a non-profit organization which was founded as a guild in 1975. It is located on the West Island, 15 minutes from downtown Montreal. Our objective is to keep rug hooking alive as a fibre art form and develop it further to include rugs, pictorials, sculpted pieces, cushions, stool covers and much more.
We hope that you will enjoy this travel around the rug hooking world and that you become as "hooked" as we are.
The Beaconsfield Hooking Crafters Guild was founded by Lois J. Morris in 1975 and has grown and flourished throughout the years. Many members started rug hooking because they remember their mother or grandmother, and in my case my grandfather, hooking rugs which welcomed people at the front door, adorned the floor at the wood stove, or assured warm feet at the bedside.
Since those times, rugs now also decorate tables, walls, footstools, or become handbags, cushions, teapot cozies, 3-dimensional art, and the ideas keep coming! We welcome newcomers to this fibre art, just as we welcome experienced rug hookers. We meet on Mondays from September to May in the charming Centennial Hall in Beaconsfield, Quebec. Drop us a line by using our Contact page.
