We collected some sign-ups last fall for various jobs at the show, but we’re now encouraging folks to sign up online to help.
The volunteer form is available now! If you signed up last fall, we’ll enter your info and you’ll get an email “receipt” to remind you of what you volunteered for!
We never quite break even and donations help! Putting on the show involves renting space for 10 days, including the set-up and the 4 days of the show itself. Our walls and lighting have to be stored from one show to the next, so there’s monthly rental for the storage unit. Use our new online donation form, or you can make out a check to GMRHG and mail it to Biffie Gallant, 2024 Hebard Hill Rd, Randolph, VT 05060.
Show your work!
Online Rug Registration will open by April 15. or you’ll be able to Download a PDF registration form. A single $10 registration fee covers up to 4 rugs and/or any number of stars.
Make a star!
“Wish upon a star” is the theme for the show and we’re looking for members to hook a star-shaped piece to display. More about this challenge.
There is a new Rug Raffle featuring a rug by Kris McDermet named “Passion”. Preview the raffle rug. Tickets will be available online starting in August, and will be available at the show.
