Does anyone remember a hooked piece of a soldier in a BDU, battle dress uniform, that hung at one of the shows back in the round barn days? It probably was also in Celebrations. The woman who hooked it gave an educational talk at the show. Thanks. ... See MoreSee Less

If you are talking about the rug in the picture attached...yes indeed...Donna Hrkman. I saw this at the 2011 Sauder Village show. I also saw the 2011 Hooked in the Mountains show but have a picture only from Sauder village.

Donnas showed the spectacular Indigenous woman at both of the 2011 shows so I would think the soldier was also at the Vermont show. Both of these rugs were very influential to my early hooking.

That's it! Thank you.

Thanks Jennifer! Fern Strong mentioned it, but haven't seen the details yet. Fern, do you still want to do a hook-in there?

Any rug hookers/punchers interested in free room/board in exchange for giving a workshop? Place: Ferry Beach Camp and Conference center - right on the beautiful beach in Saco, Maine. Dates: Aug 30 - Sept 3 (some or all of those dates I believe). Accomodations would be a dorm room with shared bathroom. ... See MoreSee Less

I would be interested.

Odd “opportunity “. Room and board are expected part of teaching fees. Is there a bartering perk element to offset teaching?

Respectfully, as someone who teaches, writes, and speaks professionally and also runs retreats and events where I hire teachers, I feel that this is not a compensation package that shows how much we value the hours of labor, financial investment in materials, and expertise good teachers provide. I think it's very important that we pay our teachers as we would any other highly skilled professionals. I think this is a conversation worth having, and it's also a parallel discussion to how we value other aspects of our art, including the pricing of quality supplies and finished pieces for sale.

The 'bartering perk' in the past for me was the sandy beach, the fantastic people, and the opportunity to sell supplies. The 'workshop' probably could be anything from an introductory demo one evening, to a several-day practice session. In the past, running a workshop at Ferry Beach for me was a really wonderful experience, combining a short morning hooking session with a vacation in a prime seaside spot. The people who gather at this center have as their first guiding principle 'the inherent worth and dignity of every person'. (see the seven principles of the uua.org). I never felt that I was being taken advantage of. It is a generous group.

I am sorry to report that Ann Winterling died last night after a debilitating stroke a couple of months ago. She had been living with her daughter, Heather, in Washington for the past year. Ann will be dearly missed by many. Here is a photo of us together at an exhibit in 2019. ... See MoreSee Less

I’m so sorry Peg. I so enjoyed meeting Ann at the hook-in Vermont. You were so close. Such beautiful friends. I met her when you were working on your beautiful little owl. I was blessed to sit with Ann and hear about her artistic approach to her art. What an amazing & creative woman. God bless.

Sweet Anne - hope you took some wool and a hook-

So very sorry for your loss. I remember her from Green Mountain Rug School when I attended a few years with my Grandmother Mary-Brandt Murphy. She’s probably up in Heaven hooking with my Grandmother already! 🥰 She was such a nice person and so talented❣️

She made everyone that met her glad , and hope we can walk in her footsteps

So sorry to hear of this. Condolences to all that knew and loved her .
