Our rug school site is located just outside of Lewisporte, which is an important hub of Newfoundland and Labrador’s marine industries. The Lewisporte Marina & Yacht Club has quickly become a favourite of ocean-going yachts and pleasure boats from around the world.
In central NL, many of our communities are touched by the ocean so what better theme for our 2018 Rug School than “Ocean’s Away”.

Mini Mat Exchange
The mini mat exchange has proved to be very popular and will be on our agenda again at Rug School. We had great participation numbers last year and you can join this year by hooking a 5 x 5-inch mat, using any pattern or theme. The mini mats will be on display at camp from Thursday until Saturday evening when you will take part in an activity that will see you exchange your mat with another hooker who is participating. Bring your finished mat to the registration table on Thursday. Attach a label to the back of your mat listing: title, your name, address, and date completed. Mini mats will be on display until the exchange activity happens on Saturday. This is a great activity to share our joy of hooking with one another!
Challenge Mat: No size limitation
Our theme “Ocean’s Away” offers lots of potential for rug hooking. We challenge you to anchor your imagination and set your direction towards completing a mat that fits with your interpretation of our theme. Participants enter their mat without revealing the owner. Entries are numbered, and selection is made by secret ballot. And, of course, there is a special prize! You might want to think about the various kinds of boating vessels on the ocean and what might be on them: sails, anchor, compass, life preserver; think about life below the ocean: starfish, whales, seahorse, jellyfish; what about cruises and mermaids? So many options!
With so many beautiful mats coming in, we want to ensure there is enough space to show them off. Please choose one of your small or medium mats for display. On Saturday, the public is invited to visit camp and view what is always an inspiring exhibition. There will be voting for Campers Choice award.
Each year a bursary, which covers tuition, is provided. If you need financial assistance and would like to attend, please apply in writing to Helen Bouzane, 83 Peddle Drive, Grand FallsWindsor, NL, A2B 1K8. Applications are strictly confidential.
Our fundraiser this year will be tickets on a bountiful basket, filled with rug hooking related items. In addition, the popular 50/50 draw will be back. Please support our fundraising efforts and remember to bring “Cash”.
