Rughooking News from Queensland


 The Sunshine Coast Rug Crafters had a busy day

at the Palmwoods Arts & Craft Show

on Saturday 18th July.

There was a lot of interest in this craft from visitors to the event and many took cards and expressed an interest in learning this craft.Anne_&_Stella_discussing_the_merits_of_different_frames_Palmwood_QLD_AustraliaJudy_Owen_demonstrating_rughooking_Palmwood_Arts_&_Crafts_Show_QLD_Australia

All members of the group did a great job engaging with the visitors to the booth and explained and demonstrated what this was all about and how to do it!

I was so proud to see how far this group of “young hookers” have come in the last year particularly.

The group now has on offer to the public a wonderful range of diverse styles, techniques and approaches that can be used to demonstrate how individual this work can be.



Many thanks to all for their help ……. it was a long day!
