The Celebration of Arts and Crafts is an annual gathering of the heritage craft guilds to promote the continuation of the work that our forefathers and mothers introduced to make items that we now take for granted or are disappearing from our generation. SCACA is helping to secure these crafts for the future by introducing them to new generations of crafters and to assist those that are trying to become more adept at their chosen craft. We are also bringing back some crafts that have come around again or introducing some new ones. There is always something new to see and do in the craft world. And once you learn the craft we also have our vendors who can supply the raw materials to make your project. We are not a craft show as you know it!!!!!

A hooked rug is made by pulling loops of yarn or rag strips up through a loosely woven foundation cloth, usually burlap, using a tool like a crochet hook. Eventually, these loops of different kinds of material in a variety of colours create a design - pictorial, floral or geometric - which covers the whole foundation and forms a sturdy mat.
