Have you ever been stuck on what to hook next? What might you do to try something new, add something extra to your piece? Did it leave you frustrated?
Where can you find the inspiration and guidance to avoid this sorry state?
That’s the beauty of the Annual — there are so many friendly, willing teachers and fellow hooking enthusiasts gathered in one spot, eager to share their knowledge and experience. And it’s the perfect getaway, with no day-to-day chores or meals to prepare!
In May 2018, that magical event will be hosted in Ottawa, and an excited, dedicated team is already hard at work planning and preparing for the big weekend! Our theme ‘Hooked on Waterways’ captures what it’s all about: a visual feast with a glorious rug display that includes many saluting Canada’s rivers, lakes and streams. There’s also the ripple effect, as we expand our rug hooking knowledge and broaden friendships. Oh, and then there’s the shopping…
The scoop on reserving early
You’ll need to move quickly to take advantage of preferred rates at one of the two adjacent hotels linked to the conference centre. As of mid-May, you can use a special code – it will be posted here – at the Courtyard Ottawa East Hotel to reserve. (Hotel bedrooms are double queens or single kings, all equipped with microwaves and fridges.)
The Ottawa Conference and Event Centre is bright, spacious and well suited to the Annual, with close indoor proximity between the various events, workshops and hooking room. The site is well located just off a major highway to downtown Ottawa (about 10-15 minutes away), and on a key bus route. Taking time to explore the beautiful National Capital Region is an encouraged added bonus.
Keep an eye on this space for inside information, updates and other highlights as the 2018 Annual takes shape.
See you in the loop!
