Ottawa Olde Forge Rug Hooking Branch

Since 1977

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.

Every year, except for 2018 when we cohosted the OHCG Annual, Ottawa Olde Forge Rug Hooking Branch hosts the Area's Hook-In. Rug Hookers from all towns, villages, cities in the designated Area 1 (Brockville, Deep River, Beaconsfield, Pembroke, Rideau Valley, Merrickville and Ottawa) are invited to attend.

Check our Gallery, Photo and Video Archives for pictures of branch activities both present and past.
