The Memories In Wool Rug Hooking Group in St. Thomas is hosting their first ever large public Show at Algoma University on May 3rd and 4th, 2014 from 10 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Donations are being accepted for Serenity House Hospice. The first show this group had was a mini one on the wall of Joe Preston's Art wall in 2008.

Joe Preston is a big promoter of arts and culture in St. Thomas. Traditional Rug Hooking has its history in the eastern part of Canada but is a thriving craft throughout North America and beyond. The canvas is the palate, and using a hook and wool, a floor rug, wall art, household d├ęcor items are made. It provides imagination, relaxation and seeing the "before" and "after" results is exhilarating.

Gail McNaughton, who managed Joe's art wall for several years, planned the event to line up with her 65th birthday on May 3rd, so it is a double celebration. Gail says that she has hooked for 17 years and enjoyed being a part of this group and taking courses to learn new techniques.

The Show will have demos, both new and old rugs, wool for sale, scissors sharpening and some talented artists who use wool as their medium. The group meets in one another's homes or at the Elgin County building and has a tie-in with the Elgin County Museum. The public are invited to come to the Show at no charge and there is ample parking.
