Margaret joined the hooking group in 2005 at the urging of Laurette Smyth. Over the years she has done many different types of crafts, but joining the group was her first attempt at rug hooking. She still considered herself a beginner with a lot to learn. Her preference is small projects that she can complete. Generally, Margaret uses #4 and #5cut wool strips, or #3cut if the area she is hooking is small. She quite enjoys the people in the group and their interesting discussions.
