Contemporary Works in Fiber
March 1-March 30th

Artist Reception: Friday, March 8, 4-6 PM


Celebrating Women’s History Month exhibiting artists include Sarah Ashe, Breslin Bell, Shari Boraz, Rosalind Daniels, Jennifer Davey, Janet Fredericks, Susan Gaffney, Karen Henderson, Eve Jacobs-Carnahan, Mon Kaczyk, Karen Kamenetzky, McKenna Kellner, Marya Lowe, Patricia Miller, Rachel Montroy, Sharon Myers, Leslie Roth, Marcie Scudder, Nancy Sepe, Gaal Shepherd, Gail Smuda, Susan Steinbrock, Fern Strong, Dayna Talbot, and Nancy Thun. 

From the intricate tapestries of ancient civilizations to the bold contemporary works of today’s textile and fiber artists, fiber endures as a unique and versatile medium for artistic expression. Its ability to convey emotion, texture, and color while straddling the divide between art and craft makes fiber art an essential part of the artistic landscape.  

In the early 1900s, artists who had been trained in the interdisciplinary techniques of art and design at the legendary Bauhaus school, began teaching internationally, helping to introduce a new generation to fiber techniques. Bauhaus graduate Anni Albers, one of the world’s most celebrated textile artists, only enrolled in the Bauhaus’s weaving workshop in 1923, because the courses she had been more interested in– painting and stained glass– were open only to men. “Circumstances held me to threads, and they won me over,” she said in a 1982 panel discussion. Fiber art emerged within the framework of women’s liberation, civil rights, and antiwar activism. From the early 1960s to the late ’70s, fiber art became a movement. Artists — predominantly women — across Europe and the United States began experimenting with thread and fabric, often pushing materials into three-dimensional objects. Contemporary artist Sheila Hicks, a revolutionary in the fiber art genre, has lived and worked in her studio in Paris since 1964. “Today, the curators walking in the door are different,” she says, “they aren’t textile or craft experts— they are contemporary art experts.”[1]  

Fabric is linked to the body and integrated into our lives: we wear it, we sleep under it, we are wrapped up in it when we are born, and we are buried in it. By considering the weight of this, a new perspective expands; fabric and textiles are inherently conceptually complex. Fiber art has seeped into the practice of many contemporary artists, blurring the line between artistic disciplines, and incorporating assorted mediums and textural fiber materials. Today the buzzword in contemporary art might be materiality; materiality is a descriptive idea that involves the making, forming, or creating of a thing.[2] In other words, meaning is embedded into the specific materials selected while making an artwork to convey a thought or feeling. Fiber art sits comfortably within the parameters of materiality; sometimes “thread” isn’t just “thread.” It might be a metaphor to represent something larger, like a connection between the artist and the viewer– or a hopeful stitch between two conflicting nations. It might signify a mended wound, and a quilt might imply a blanket used to comfort loneliness. Fiber art can be purely aesthetic as well, distinctively a handmade work of art that is beautifully crafted. The exhibiting artists of form + texture have used brilliant colors, textures, sculpted forms, design, and materiality. Their handmade choices are aesthetically appealing, and poetic titles reveal a rich and personal visual vernacular. The exhibition is a feast for the eyes and heart.

About the Show:

This group show includes felting, knitting, weaving, basket making, hooked rugs, and more from fiber artists across Vermont. About half of the work is from a project organized by Kimberly Hagen to promote the use of felted wool as an attractive, sustainable, and sound dampening option for restaurant decor. The remaining work highlights the wide variety of other styles and techniques used by fiber artists in Vermont.

The felted portion of the show was funded by a 2018 grant from the American Sheep Industry Association and was previously exhibited at the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival and the Hildene Estate in Manchester, VT.

Newsletter News….

Hilary Farquhar is taking over the Newsletter, starting with the December issue.

News items, recent projects, etc. should be sent to, which will forward to her.

But the newsletter can also be YOU sharing with us….   Everyone is interested in what’s happening in other parts of the state.  Consider having someone from your local hooking group report out once or twice a year.

Barb Ackemann remains the Communications Chair and will focus on the website and improving the Wild Apricot integration.

Make a weekend of it…

We have two vendors for the event, but if you need to visit Dorr Mill Store, it’s just an hour away.

Maybe you can’t do everything in one day – call the Resort 802-333-4311  and ask for the GMRHG rate  ($169 classic/$179 lakeside) and stay Friday or Saturday night – or both!



Hook-in and Business Meeting November 18

We just had a very successful weekend at the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival and now turn our attention to the upcoming 1-day Hook-in and Business Meeting coming up next month.

This will be Saturday November 18 at the Lake Morey Inn in Fairlee, VT from 9-3.

Sandy Ducharme and Mary Lee O’Connor will be our on-site vendors so you can shop for that specific color and pattern that is missing in your stash.

We will also have our infamous “Red Solo Cup Auction”.  For those of you new to the “Red Solo Cup Auction” experience—you bring your fibery/crafty related items and we auction the goods off.  Funds raised help to offset the cost of GMRHG events and programs.  Please bring items to add to this fun-raising opportunity (and don’t forget your money).  Contact Kris McDermet ( if you have any questions or just bring your goods to donate to the fun!

I had wanted to learn to hook a face, and thought what better person to start with than my Dad. I have many great pictures of him but decided on a picture of him as I most often saw him, in his barn frock and red plaid wool hat. I struggled with this rug but am now happy with the result.

The Bridge at Cushendun

  • Hooked by: Barb Ackemann
  • Designed by: Barb Ackemann
  • Width: 23.25
  • Height: 31.25
My Kilpatrick ancestors came from County Antrim. I got to see that part of Ireland in 2005 and took the photo that inspired this hooking. I started this in a class on hooking Water and Sky but didn’t get very far. When I got back to it and actually got to hooking the water it was addictive and quick. This piece was selected for Celebration 32.

My rug honors the sheep which produce the wool for felting and rugs, and the rural landscape that supports them. Camel’s Hump and red clover added as a nod to Vermont. All wool hand-dyed. Used #3, 4, and 6 cuts. (Thanks to Karolyn Cooper of the Distant Drumlin Blog, and Hillsboro Gin & Feed for allowing me to use their photos in my design.)

And the winners are….

For the 2022 Hooked in the Mountains Rug Show we had two jurors who together selected 3 Juror’s Awards and 3 Honorable Mentions. They took a long time deciding and looked closely at every single rug! And they wished they had been allowed to honor more rugs and artists.

Artist’s Talk with Liv Aanrud—Saturday, November 6th from 4 until 5 pm

Liv Aanrud is a textile artist who combines elements of weaving, tufting, painting and drawing to dimensional fabric paintings and installations. In her talk to the Green Mountain Hooking Guild, Liv will discuss how her work progressed from painting into textiles, and how intuition, improvisation, rhythm, and scale influence how and what she makes.

She earned her B.F.A with a painting emphasis from the University of Wisconsin—Eau Claire in 2001 and an M.F.A from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University in 2011.

Aanrud’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at New Image Art, Arvia, 1700 Naud, and TSA-LA in Los Angeles; Sierra Nevada College in Lake Tahoe, NV, Oasis Gallery, Marquette, MI, John Davis Gallery and Pamela Salisbury Gallery in Hudson NY, and Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, NYC. Her work has been shown in group exhibitions across the U.S., Taiwan, Germany, and Spain. She has an upcoming exhibition in Lillehammer, Norway.

She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.

No July Hook-in but….

The Board met and came to the conclusion that there wasn’t time to plan a Hook In for July, and that many members were busy with vacation plans and finally getting to be with grand-children.   We’ll look to schedule something in the fall.

We’re hoping your local groups are finding time and spaces to get together.

The Brattleboro Rug Social group was able to meet in our usual space for the first time last week.  It was so good to be able to be in the same space together.

We still hope people are thinking about how to Hook in Public  this summer, but the weather has been challenging!  Maybe looking into the fall will be good for that too.

We’re not far in our 251 Challenge to Hook in Public in all 251 towns in Vermont.  But please do let us know where you’ve been hooking or if you’re thinking about participating in a fair, Old Home Days, festival or other gathering.   We want more people to SEE what we do and get interested in hooking or punching.


Mad River Hook June 11

Quite a few of our members met at  The Mad River Fiber Mill in Waitsfield on June 11th.

Are your local groups meeting – inside or out?   Send us updates and pictures!




How to Incorporate Photography into your Rug Hooking Practice

An edited version of our May workshop, via Zoom is available here for those who missed it.  Thanks to Anne-Marie Littenberg for a great presentation and to Sharon O’Neill for facilitating, editing the recorded session and getting it up on our YouTube channel.

RBG by Lynn Soule in the news…

This week’s Only in The Islands by You features the work of Champlain Islands Fiber Bee Lynn Soule of North Hero who hooked this incredible portrait of RBG in a mere three months from a painting by Florida artist Alicia Betancourt. Thank you Lynn for sharing with us all.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg
March 15, 1933 – Sept. 18, 2020

NORTH HERO – Champlain Islands Fiber Bee Lynn Soule hooked this remarkable portrait of RBG from a painting by Alicia Betancourt. Soule saw the painting at an art festival in Florida and immediately asked the artist for permission to recreate as hooked rug.

Granted permission, Soule began hooking the portrait in January of 2019. She told The Islander, “it took about three months to complete, which was quick because I was so into it.”

“It really took on a life of its own. The jewels in the crown are part of my aunt Lilyth Coates jewelry collection, sister of Joyce Chamberlain. The collar is from Jane Straiton’s grandmother and the earrings are actually lapel pins representing the Scales of Justice and Gender Equality.”

The piece will be featured in the November/December issue of Rug Hooking Magazine.

When asked what her plans are for the piece, Soule said “It is hanging in my dining room and will stay there.”

No meeting December 5th

The board determined we needed to postpone the membership meeting until January.   Watch this space for updates when things are finalized.   We did get some folks who came forward intertested in serving on the board — so that’s good news!
