Just finished hooking this one. Woody Woodpecker designed by Susan Cunningham. She has written several articles for Rug Hooking. Found this pattern at Dorr and thought it would be a fun way to use up "stuff" in my stash. I added the clock on the wall and gave Woody a floor to stand on. Hope Woody gives you a smile. ...

You can! The best address to use is gmrhg.wildapricot.org. You'll see a list of events and can click on the May 8 event and access the link to Register. Free to members of the guild (not the facebook group). $5 to non-members. Joining the Guild itself is $25/year and we'd love to have you join!

Greetings members! As a reminder I am reposting our group guidelines as we have had issues with posts. The primary issue is people doing direct marketing posts. Our hope here is that we share our artwork, our questions, our inspirations and Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild events. There are other pages for marketing and ask that you post on those pages instead.
Let us know if you have questions about this. Thanks

GMRHG online workshop: Anne-Marie Littenberg

May 8 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Saturday, May 8th from 10:30 am until noon via zoom

Free for members/$5.00 for non-members

Anne-Marie Littenberg will talk about how to incorporate taking photographs into your rug hooking practice. Your pictures can be taken with whatever device you have at hand such as a telephone, tablet, point and shoot, or fancy rig. Anne-Marie will talk about three different aspects of using a camera: 1) inspiration. 2) to help in the design and evaluation of a new rug. 3) to document your work.

How can the camera help evaluate my rug hooking? How do I translate a photograph into a rug pattern? Why do my photographs look so different from someone else’s? How do I snap a picture of my rug to make it look its best? These are some of the topics we will cover. And bring your questions!

Anne-Marie is a regular contributor to Rug Hooking Magazine, and has photographed many of the “Celebration” winners over the years. She was also the primary photographer for the GMRHG Hooked in the Mountains Virtual Rug Hooking Show. The author and photographer of “Hooked Rug Portraits” and “Hooked Rug Landscapes,” she believes it is important to have high quality images of your hooked rug art as documentation to pass on for future generations. She also believes the camera is a powerful tool that can help with one’s creative pursuits.

Register for this event and the ZOOM link will be sent to you in your receipt.

We’ll resend that ZOOM link the day before to all who registered for the event

We enjoyed the creativity, may your hands continue to create beauty with all the natural elements you encounter

Very nice!

Lovely painting!

Glad to see that someone else puts away their wool for the summer. Like you, I am a landscaper/gardener and turn to the outside during the summer months. With no air conditioning in my home, I can't bear to handle wool in the summer heat. Love your work. Happy gardening.

Put away! Oh, I have to hook year round!

I quit around now until September. I want to be out in the garden in the summer.

There ARE rainy days when gardening isn’t practical.....

I know. Spent all day until now in greenhouse. In spite of putting the tools away shortly I am grabbing bits of time to finish the border in the fifth of the series I’ve worked on this winter.
