From the Presidents:

October 2018

President's Letter - President's Letter - Well, we just had our first official meeting of the 2018/2019 hooking year. Lots of items were discussed and lots of plans made. We decided that doing a mat exchange for Christmas was not a good idea because members are too busy with their own projects. We did talk about doing a spring/summer challenge with a Seed Pack theme (Vintage or new – your choice.) Hopefully we will get a lot of participation and next year’s 4H display will wow the viewers. Keep in mind that your design needs to be no larger than an 8 ½ by 11 Sheet of paper. One of our members agreed to talk to Burpee Seeds to determine if we need to worry about copyright infringements.

We discussed the need to keep members updated with happenings within the guild as well as keeping our interfaces with the public informative and up to date. A communications committee has been developed to work toward this goal. We’ll talk more about this in October.

Fall is just around the corner, with winter right in the next room. If you have big plans for winter and fall projects now is the time to start. Our October program is about dyeing your own wool, maybe you can dye the wool you need for your projects. Now might be a good time to start. If not, think about what you want to finish when the days are cool and you are stuck indoors. Maybe just think spring and start your seed packet.

Yours in wool,
Mary and Robin

The Hunterdon County Rug Artisans Guild was founded in April 1977. We currently have over 130 members from nine states. The mission of the Guild is to perpetuate the tradition and art of rug hooking, to encourage creativity, to provide the means for an exchange of ideas and information and to promote educational activities to enhance the interest in rug hooking. Monthly meetings in Flemington, New Jersey offer programs for someone new to rug hooking as well as the seasoned artisan. Members have opportunities to participate in hooking demonstrations, rug exhibits, rug camps and “hook-ins”. A supportive environment is provided for those new to the craft and for those looking to refine their technique. New members are always welcome!
