Rose Kandy Unnamed  Design by Lois J. Morris 2003 15” x 15” Picture by Jayant Kandalgaonkar According  to my memory, I began this piece in September 2003, when I took my retirement. This cushion was never named as it was used as a teaching piece during a course given by Lois J. Morris. We learned how to hold the material and the hook, to use the patterns, to create various stitches, and to finish a piece. The border is a braided black silk cord, and the back of the cushion is black fabric. #beaconsfieldhookingcrafters #rosekandy #jayantkandalgaonkar #loisjmorris #rughooking #hookedrugs #hookedcushions #hookedpillows #pillows #cushions #florals #butterflies #flowers #hookedrugsofinstagram #flowersofinstagram #fibertart #fibreart

First Pillow
Original
2012
20” x 20”
#6 cut background, various cuts for the details

This is the first thing I ever hooked. It was started in a beginner class with Lois J Morris at BHCG in 2012. A fun project, it is hooked with worms from a guild bag of goodies, torn up denim jean fabric and several shades of a wool blend from the remnant bin at my local fabric store. The background is #6 cut, and the design was hooked in various cuts depending on what the goodie bag offered.

Special Show & Tell: Inspired by Mom  Cheers to our Mothers who are our source of love, guidance, strength, and creativity. To all Moms, thank you for the care and inspiration you have given us! Happy Mother’s Day!  Claire Turturro, daughter of Lois J. Morris Kyoto panel  Rittermere 1980 #6 cut 27” x 60” This is the first rug I hooked.  I had loved the design in mom’s catalogue since I was 8 or 9.  I never took a class from her per se, but always sat and had tea and chatted with the ladies who took her classes at our house when I would come in from classes at high school and college.  I guess I learned by osmosis. When you have watched someone as skilled at their art form as my mom day in and day out for years, her knowledge and expertise rub off on you without realizing the knowledge you have acquired. When in college I finally said to Mom that I had always loved this design. She then gave me the pattern and wool swatches as a Christmas gift, and I started working on it at home with her guidance before I got married in 1980. I finished it on my own as a newlywed in late 1980. Designed to honour Japan’s Expo ‘70*, this design features huge chrysanthemums assembled with oriental simplicity. The border is based on Japanese calligraphy. I have it at home as a wall hanging. I do not hook now. I do embroidery and silk thread painting as my hobby/craft in retirement. My mom has always been a great inspiration for me.  I believe my skill level of shading and stitching my flowers and leaves in my embroidery and thread painting is directly related to what I heard Mom teach her students. * https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expo_%2770 #claireturturro #loisjmorris #beaconsfieldhookingcrafters #rittermere #expo70 #mothersday #inspiredbymom #chrysanthemums #kyotojapan #hookedrugsofinstagram #rughooking #rughookingpatterns #hookedrugs #floralrugs #flowersofinstagram #fiberart #tapestryart #handmaderugs #handhookedrug

Sylvia Solomon Pretty Paisley Original 2009 3 ft x 6 ft I chose the predominant paisley motif to create a modern rug with a symmetric field, skipping the border and its ornamentations. I used non-directional hooking (or higgledy-piggledy), with a three-colour palette for the background, instead of the traditional monochromatic straight lines. I used #5 and #6 cuts of recycled wool. #sylviasolomon #beaconsfieldhookingcrafters #rughooking #hookedrugs #hookedrugsofinstagram #paisley #flowers #rugdesign #flowersofinstagram #fiberart #floralrugs #hookedmat #artrugs #rugart #handmaderugs #tapiscrocheté #textileartistsofinstagram #floralmotifs #artisanatdart #rughookersofinstagram #rughookingartists #canadianartists #textileart #fibreart #contemporarytextiles #fiberart #symmetry

Claire Fradette Floral Rug Designer unknown 2006 22” x 40” I got this floral pattern from Kay Cousineau. I hooked the background in a higgledy piggledy fashion  using darker values of red and blue to both harmonize with and to highlight the soft pastel primary colours used to hook the flowers. I chose a #6 cut.  #clairefradette #beaconsfieldhookingcrafters #kaycousineau #rughooking #hookedrugs #hookedrugsofinstagram #flowers #rugdesign #flowersofinstagram #fiberart #floralrugs #hookedmat #artrugs #rugart #handmaderugs #tapiscrocheté #textileartistsofinstagram #floralmotifs #artisanatdart #rughookersofinstagram #rughookingartists #canadianartists #textileart #fibreart #fiberart #contemporarytextiles

Brenda Ticehurst Geraniums in a Box 2007 16" x 20" This rug was inspired by a picture in a "How to Paint Book", the name of which I forget.  It shows geraniums in a corner of a window box. It was done with recycled wool #6 cut. I gave it to my sister Linda, and it hangs in the family room of her cottage at Sixteen Island Lake. She says it is her favourite.  #brendaticehurst #beaconsfieldhookingcrafters #rughooking #hookedrugs #geranium #geranios #florals #hookedrugsofinstagram #paisley #flowers #rugdesign #flowersofinstagram #fiberart #floralrugs #hookedmat #artrugs #rugart #handmaderugs #tapiscrocheté #textileartistsofinstagram #floralmotifs #artisanatdart #rughookersofinstagram #rughookingartists #canadianartists #textileart #fibreart #fiberart #contemporarytextiles

Zoom Punch-Along   

To celebrate International Punch Needle Rug Hooking Day, members of our Guild met via Zoom to a Punch-Along, many of us doing Rebecca White Martin’s free The Crocus pattern, offered by Rug Hooking Magazine. A couple of members from the Thousand Islands Guild joined in and it was a perfect opportunity for Ti to share some of her punching tips. What a way to say hello to spring and to new hope!

April 10th: INTERNATIONAL PUNCH NEEDLE RUG HOOKING DAY

Our members are always exploring new ideas, materials, and techniques, looking for alternative ways to express themselves and expand their creativity.

After completing Amy Oxford’s Punch Needle Rug Hooking Teacher Certification Program, Dawna presented 2 workshops to the BHCG members in 2018.

Claire and Candace took a course as well in the past and they shared their learned experiences with the Guild.

Mini-punch needle hooking using embroidery floss is also popular as seen in many of Helen Radford’s, Carolyn Ells’, M McMurray’s, and Ann Arial’s pieces. Carolyn Ells presented a Show and Share in 2015 following her inspiration from Kathleen Menzies’ work.

Today, to celebrate International Punch Needle Day, members of our Guild are meeting via Zoom for a Punch-Along.

Family Plaid

I took this class with Laurie Wiles at TIGHR 2015. The plaid spells out TIGHR. By converting the alphabet into numbers and colours a pattern emerges.  I gave a class to the Beaconsfield hookers on my return, for others to make their own unique Personal Plaid. About 10 ladies participated and it was in 2016.
