Canberra Craft & Quilt Fair


Expertise Events Canberra Fair.

The Australian Rugmakers Guild was represented for the first time at Expertise Events Craft Fair in Canberra last week.   Maggie Whyte was responsible for organizing friends and local rugmakers to demonstrate rughooking.


Maggie said it was a great success – they talked and demonstrated to so many, there was hardly time for a coffee.






Maggie said she heard so many times….. “my mother or grand-mother used to do this or they did it as small children”.  She’s wondering what happened to the interest in rughooking in the meantime?

Hopefully these demonstrations, follow-up local workshops and national events, like the South Australian Rughooking Expo, will generate more interest in this craft.

Look for a group in your area or an Instructor on this website.
