Hooked in the Mountains XV [247]

?11/19/11: Did you know that the world's largest hooked rug exhibit is held in VT every year? The 15th annual Hooked in the Mountains was held at the Shelburne Museum in the round barn and included about 480 rugs, each made one loop at a time by members of the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild. While the subject matter, colors and styles varied wildly, all hookers share an appreciation of this historic art form.

Music: Joshua Panda, "Rosie"
