Shelburne, Vermont

Our day trip to Shelburne, Vermont
By Maria Romero

By 8:30 in the morning on Saturday, November 12, 2011, Louise G. de Tonnancour, Denise Morissette, Carolyn Ells and myself were on the road to Vermont to go to the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild's bi-annual exhibition at the Shelburne Museum. The theme was "All the live long day - A celebration of working, industry and innovation"; Betty Bouchard (Richmond), Bev Conway (Middlebury) and Helen Wolfel (Georgia) were the guests of honour.

We admired about 450 rugs of various styles and sizes, some quite captivating.

In the exhibition were displayed rugs from our BHCG artisans, Judith Dallegret, Maureen Rowe, Louise G. de Tonnancour and myself.

The creativity at this much anticipated event more than met our expectations, which made filling out the "visitor's choice" form difficult.The quality and variety of products on offer by the vendors were most attractive.

We were more than delighted and inspired to continue with our craft, as we drove back to
Montreal in the late afternoon.
