Australian Rug Makers Guild membership

It is that time of the year where we encourage you to either renew or sign up as members of the Australian Rug Makers Guild.
Why you say should I be a member? How will it benefit me?
  • Well,the biggest benefit is the networking from all around Aus and when, like me and other of our rug hooking grey nomads, you travel our fair country, you will have names and addresses of rug hookers and groups you may want to visit along the way. You will get all this information in a regular email or snail mail leaflet called ' In the Loop"
  • Members get to advertise items for sale (tools, supplies, kits) on the website free of charge.
  • Members also get to advertise their workshops or events on the website free of charge.
  • And in a new section - when this section of the website is up and running-  you will be able to ask questions about techniques and your question will be answered personally via email.
And, if that is not enough, you will help support the promotion of Rug Hooking in Australia. Having the ARG organization behind you is another benefit of membership, especially in applying for grants for expensive items, like wool cutters, which may be too costly and investment for individuals.

So people, what do you think? Well worth the $20, don't you think? Five cups of coffee and you have paid for it. :) 
You can find an application form on the ARG website HERE
