The annual Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild Summer Hook-In
The annual Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild Summer Hook-In took place on July 27th and 28th at the Fireside Inn in West Lebanon, N.H. Our fellow rug hooker, Lin Watson, was among the guest speakers and, to the great pleasure of an audience of 100, she gave a wonderful PowerPoint presentation and discourse on the history of rug hooking in Quebec.

This is a selection of rugs from our September 2010 retrospective exhibition, held at Centennial Hall, to celebrate the Guild’s 35th anniversary.

















Tuscan Landscape
by Lorayne Charenko


This rug is an adaptation of a picture I had seen and liked. I used both new and recycled materials. I overdyed some pieces and cut out by hand strings of colour from plaid material.  New materials were cut by machine. I really enjoyed this project with its many challenges.






















My Cottage Garden
by Maureen Rowe


This was my first walk-upon rug that I started at the Nova Scotia Rug Hooking Guild school many years ago. It was a pattern from an unknown source at the time and I found my childhood dream cottage in it. It is a fantasy house with very large flowers in front and lollipop trees behind. I felt like it was a candy house in a way. Hooked in wool. It has a place of honor on my living room floor and many loving feet have trod upon it.
