2015 Schedule of Events Planned

The GMRHG Board of Directors held its winter retreat in January.  We had two days of wonderful conversation resulting in what we believe is a great schedule of gatherings for 2015. 


Many thanks to our members who returned the survey providing us with feedback on Guild activities and the 2015 Show.   That feedback helped us to look at the year ahead. 

This year there will be five opportunities for members to gather.   We’ve listened to the members and will be offering a variety of opportunities around Vermont.  


Each one is a little different, but they all have a commonality – meet old and new friends, learn from each other, show and tell, hook, and shop!  As the year goes forward you’ll be hearing more about each event.   Whether you can make one event or all the events we hope we’ve planned something for everyone.

We hope to see you at one or more of our events!
