Rug hookers that is. Hooked in the Mountains XVI, a Hooked Rug and Fiber Art exhibit, will be held at the beautiful Shelburne Museum Round Barn Nov. 10-17.  Featuring three floors of exhibit space and over 450 works of art, the exhibit theme, “Time and Motion,” will delight visitors of all ages. These amazing textiles, hooked by members of the Green Mountain Rug Hooking guild from all over the world, range from the traditional antique and primitive patterns to ultra modern and original designs.  In addition, visitors will enjoy free daily demonstrations and guest speakers on all types of fiber art topics as well as an entire floor of vendors for gift shopping and stocking up on supplies. Refreshments are also available in our special café and education area.

Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild Shelburne members include Gail Lapierre, Celia Oliver, Emily Ewald, Judith Cole, Karen Villanti, Libby Kennedy, Mary Lou Mannix, May Affleck, Nancy Baker, Priscilla Heininger, Robyn Woodworth, and Ruth St. George.

This amazing display of fiber art also features the collected works of three featured artists, Catherine Henning of Ontario, Canada, Ann Winterling of Concord, N.H., and Elizabeth Guth of Tunbridge. These exceptional rug-hooking artists will be honored at an Artist’s Reception on Saturday, Nov. 10 from 5-7 pm.

Three-day workshops are also taking place throughout the week. But many are filled or nearly filled. For more information about classes, please see www.hooked inthemountainsworkshops.com.
