Hooked in the Mountains Workshops

Hooked in the Mountains Workshops

October 14 - 19, 2014

Champlain Valley Exposition

105 Pearle Street

Essex Junction, Vermont


Dear Fellow Rug Hookers,

The Hooked in the Mountains Workshops are making a huge move.  We are leaving the Shelburne Museum and are moving to the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction.  We will not have the quaint buildings of the museum, but there will be advantages to this move.  One of the advantages is that we will have access to the classrooms until 8 pm.  Another advantage is that it will be held almost a month earlier. It will still be leaf peeping season!  The beauty of Vermont will be shown in fall colors.  We will be holding two 3-day sessions and several 1-day classes.  In order to have two full 3-day sessions we will be starting the first session on October 14, one day before the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild's rug show opens on October 15.

Amy Moody Catering will be returning to prepare for us her wonderful lunches. 

Many new and exciting teachers have been added to our lineup, along with some of our favorite teachers returning.  I have listened to your request of workshop topics and hope that I have covered many of them.

Please note that all are welcome, you do not have to a member of the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild to take a workshop or two. 

I have secured a group rate of $95 + tax per night at the Comfort Inn & Suites located at 5 Dorset Street in South Burlington.  This is an amazing price during leaf peeping season. The phone number for reservations is 802-863-5541; ask for the special rate for the Hooked in the Mountains Workshops.  This hotel is just 5 miles to the Champlain Valley Exposition and less than 2 miles to the Burlington International Airport and Church Street in downtown Burlington.


Please note, the block of rooms are sold out for some of the days at the Comfort Inn & Suites on Dorset St.  I am currently working on finding another hotel with a discounted rate and will post it here as soon as it is finalized.
