Welcome to Ottawa Olde Forge Rug Hooking Branch

We are based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and are within Area One of the Ontario Hooking Craft Guild (OHCG).  OHCG is our connection to rug hooking throughout the province of Ontario and beyond. Our members hook in a wide range of styles including primitive and traditional and enjoy experimenting in new and innovative interpretations with a variety of fibres and backings.

The Olde Forge Rug Hooking Branch is delighted to be cohosting, along with the other Area 1 branches, the 2018 OHCG Annual in Ottawa. Plan to join us May 4-6, 2018, as we salute the rivers, lakes, streams and oceans of Canada. It promises to be a great event, both for hookers and for members of the public (via the Open House on Sunday) who are interested in learning more about the craft.
