Chandler Center for the Arts

71 North Main Street
Randolph, VT  05060

From the organizers:

“This show will focus on color in textile and fiber arts.

Trichromancy aims to showcase various dyeing techniques and styles, from traditional to contemporary creations. We will also display pieces that are not hand-dyed but fulfill the requirement of being a textile/fiber creation where color plays a vital role in the work.”

All’s Wool That Ends Wool – show in Montpelier

North Branch Nature Center

713 Elm Street
Montpelier, Vermont 05602

(Regular exhibit hours 9 am – 5 pm M – F   January 12 through March 28)

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.

Highlights of our Upcoming Hook-in November 18th.

  • We’ll have a business meeting, hear from committees, and elect new board members — we have a terrific slate lined up by Sue Girouard and Davey Degraff — watch for an email on October 18th!
  • We’ll have two vendors on site:   Sandy Ducharme, and Mary Lee O’Connor.
  • We’ll have door prizes for folks who show up for the meeting.
  • We’ll have a “Red Solo Cup Auction” – which is really a multi-prize raffle — you put your tickets in the cup next to the prize you hope to win.
  • Barb Ackemann will do a demo of making a double zipper / double pouch purse using a small piece of hooking. You need to be registered for the event and send an email to barb@gmrhg.org.  The first 10 emails will be in the morning demonstration.  If there’s more interest, she’ll do another demo in the afternoon.   The demo is on the sewing / construction of the purse, not on the hooking!  She’ll have zippers and pulls available for sale for your project.
  • We’ll have a “throw down” area for show and tell of your recent projects.
  • We’ll have a nice lunch, and coffee / tea / etc. and snacks throughout the day.
  • We’ll have lots of fun!

Are you registered yet?   Do it here! Registration Deadline: November 9th.

The Resort charges us per person for the room, beverages, snacks, and lunch, and we’ve discounted that cost for members.

The event is open to guests, but we’ve priced that to actually cover our cost per person — and to encourage membership! Bring your friends.  It will be a great introduction to a great group of people.

 

Make a weekend of it…

Our Hook-in / Meeting at Lake Morey Resort is just 12 minutes away from the Rug Show at Pompanoosac Mills in East Thetford.

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 (kmcdermet1@gmail.com) if you have any questions or just bring your goods to donate to the fun!

Liv Aanrud is a textile artist who combines elements of weaving, tufting, painting and drawing to dimensional fabric paintings and installations.

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.

Here’s a screen shot from our recent board meeting, to give you an idea of how this might work. There were only ten of us, so we could all fit on the screen.  For the April 25 event,  you’ll see one person at a time sharing their projects.  And it can really be a hook in, because you can hook while you watch!  Just be ready when it’s your turn to to share!

GMRHG Board Meeting via Zoom

Fall Hook-In 2019

A large group of hookers enjoyed the two-day Fall Hook in at the Stoweflake Inn in Stowe. The room was packed with enthusiasm. People from near and far shared the camaraderie of hooking. Several vendors were set up around the outside of the room. The colorful displays drew many a hooker over for a few more “must have” pieces of wool or accessories. Besides a Guild meeting run by our leader Gina and our very capable Board, we heard from two speakers and did some group sharing.

Judith Hotchkiss

Spring Meeting and Hook In was a great event!

About 50 of us met April 27, 2019 at the Capital City Grange in Berlin, VT, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Our presenter, Kathy Giroux, is a fiber artist who specializes in needle felting.   Kathy gave a brief history of needle felting, and then focused on the process using many examples of how she uses needle felting in her art.  We got a good overview of what Kathy means when she says, “I paint with fiber.”

We had two vendors for the spring hook-in in Barre/Montpelier:

  • Mary Lee O’Conner – Hooked in the Mountains Wool
  • Stephanie Krauss – Green Mountain Hooked Rugs

November Hook In at the Sunset Ballroom

I’m sure there are wonderful Sunsets to be viewed from this room, but for us the Sunlit Ballroom would be a better name!

From Kris McDermet:

The Hook In last weekend was wonderful and fun and colorful with beautiful views and vendors and friends.  What could be better!  Thank you for all of your work and organization, Jane and Gail especially, and to the board for making it such a nice time.

The space for the Hook In was great – with good lighting for all – except when we wished we could have darkness for our presenters’ slide shows!

2017 Raffle — Game Table by Patty Yoder

Barbara Lukas won the table, designed and hooked by Patty Yoder.

The Shelburne Museum currently has an exhibiton of Patty Yoder’s work at the Pizzagalli Art and Education Building. Many of you knew Patty, but many new hookers may not know about her. She was one of our guild Presidents and very instrumental in bringing the Hooked in the Mountain Show to the Shelburne Museum. She is much missed.

Here is what the museum says about Patty’s work “Bringing together the artist’s first and last works alongside preparatory sketches and other ephemera, Hooked on Patty Yoder surveys the 13 -year career of American rug hooker Patty Yoder (1943-2005). Best known for her beguiling Alphabet of Sheep (2003), Yoder conceived of her designs as “paintings with wool to be hung and enjoyed as art.” Exacting attention to color, composition, and technique, paired with Patty’s penchant for high visual standards and whimsical designs, truly sets her work as a new standard within the field of American textile arts.”

Museum admission is $10. The show opened September 30 and comes down January 21. Many guild members took advantage of being close by and fit in a trip to the museum while in the area for the Hook In. If you couldn’t make it, there is still time!

2016 Raffle Rug – Update!

raffle-rug-finishedThis is the raffle rug for the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild’s Hooked in the Mountains XVIII Rug Show at the Champlain Valley Expo Center in Essex, Vermont, October 19-23, 2016.

The following rug hooking artists made the 8 rectangles and many thanks to them for creating such imaginative designs.  They donated their pieces to the guild several years ago.  The 8 rectangles had been part of the Circus Train Exhibit at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, VT.

Joanne Millen
John Woodard
Susan Gingas
Anne Marie Littenberg
Polly Alexander
Debra Boudrieau
Kim Dubay
Judith Osler Phillips

Each rectangle has been surrounded with braid, then joined together with a hooked border on the top and bottom and finished off with 2-3 more rows of braid.

The overall size is approximately 3 feet 10 inches by 6 feet 11 inches.

UPDATE:  Joanne Heidkamp recently got in touch.  She wrote:

I am the person who won the Circus Train hooked rug at the Rug Show last year.

It was too big to display properly in my little ranch house, so I reached out  through some friends, and eventually donated it to the Cobleigh Library in Lyndonville. They have it displayed on the wall in their Children’s Room

If anyone in the Guild has time, it would be neat if someone could contact the Library and give them background on the people who hooked the various squares, and maybe some basics on caring for a hooked rug.   And of course if you have members over in that area, they might enjoy visiting the rug on display.

Their webpage is http://cobleighlibrary.org/main/

It is nice to know that many people will have the chance to see and enjoy the rug.    We’ll be providing the library a copy of the book that was made about the Circus Train Exhibit at the Shelburne Museum.  The eight panels in this rug were part of that exhibit several years ago.
