Canberra Retreat and Exhibition


Call for Entries :

 It is now less than 4 months before the Australian Rugmakers Weekend Retreat & Exhibition in Canberra, ACT at the Woolshed in Strathnairn.   Planning is now well under way.

There will be a Guild General Meeting on Saturday 3rd Sept and the Exhibition will be opened by Nancy Tingey on Sunday 4th Sept.

I am sure our members are busy making amazing rugs, big and small.  (Entry Forms). 

It is going to be a very special event with talks by guest textile artists and how-to demonstrations, plus meeting up and enjoying the company of rug makers from around the county.  

I can’t wait to see all my rug friends and their work very soon.      Maggie

Pod in old gum tree StrathnairnEditors Note: Maggie’s already had work on display at Strathnairn; this hooked pod was photographed in the grounds.  Maggie made the felt, dyed it and then cut the felt into strips and hooked the strips into hessian.   

Look for more or Maggie’s very creative works on the Guild Facebook page.
