Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild 

Guild Spring Membership Meeting
June 6 - Brattleboro, VT

The GMRHG's Spring Membership Meeting will be held on June 6 at the All Souls Unitarian Church in Brattleboro.

Our guest speaker is Karen Kamenetzky, a fiber artist who dyes, paint and stitches cottons and silks to create boldly colored wallhangings. Her work is known for its lush color and sensuous textures.

Her art "dazzles the eye, the skin, the mind. Lush color, sensuous textures, and dynamic compositions combine to form organic abstractions of subatomic life. She fuses intense, unexpected color combinations with forms that are deployed in sometimes rhythmic and other times syncopated patterns. Stitching becomes the top note of her jazzy riffs on the microscopic structures of our world."
Mara Williams, Curator, Brattleboro Museum and Art Center

More about Karen and her work can be seen at

In addition to our guest speaker we will conduct Guild business, hold a "show and tell" and have plenty of time for hooking!

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!
