To get you thinking about hooking a rug for the Theme Category at the 2017 Annual (in Cobourg), the theme is “Images of Canada”, in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday celebration.
For the public, the rug show of hundreds of beautifully hand-crafted hooked pieces of art will be open from 10 am to 3 pm on Sunday, April 30th. There is a charge of $10 per person.
The OHCG 50th Anniversary Annual Conference was held at the Deerhurst Resort in the beautiful Muskokas, April 29th to May 1st, 2016
The Theme was “Going for Gold”
The Conference, Workshops and “Going for Gold” theme display
