I joined the VT251 Club for two reasons….well, probably more than just 2. I am a Burlington based fiber artist/rug hooker and the my guild, Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild (GMRHG) has decided to do a 251 challenge of our own. We have challenged our members to host an outdoor hook-in event in each of our 251 towns. A member chooses a date and location then posts on our Facebook group page hoping others show up to join them. We have been having fun doing this throughout the summer and will continue into the fall. We have all missed hooking with each other during the pandemic and this challenge has provided us the opportunity to meet safely again. We are also hoping to raise interest in this traditional craft/art form. We post pictures of our gatherings on our Facebook group page.
