Hooked in the Mountains Workshops

Champlain Valley Exposition
105 Pearle Street
Essex Junction, Vermont
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.
Unfortunately the Dorset St. Comfort Inn is fully booked. I have
secured a group rate of $115.00 + tax at the Comfort Inn & Suites located at 1712 Shelburne Road in South Burlington.
This is the hotel that we stayed in when we were still located at the Shelburne Museum. It is approximately 10
miles from the Champlain Valley Exposition. To reserve a room please call them at 802-846-1926 and ask for the group
rate for the Hooked in the Mountains Workshops. There were a few Queen Suites still available for less then the group
rate. You may check to see if any are still available at their website: www.comfortsuites.com/hotel-south_burlington-vermont-VT020?source=gglocaloz
