Box lunches are $10 and must be pre-ordered on your registration form. Lunches are being provided by Jersey Mikes and include a mini sub, chips, cookie, and bottled water.


What is a hook-in without wonderful vendors? We have assembled an exciting selection of vendors. A wide variety of the finest rug hooking wools off the bolt and wonderfully over dyed wools will be available for purchase. A large selection of patterns will be available as well as the latest hooking frames, equipment, kits, books, and supplies.

The following studios, suppliers and vendors will be represented at the hook-in:

Book Signing

Guild members Karl and Mary Jo Gimber will be available to autograph their recently published book, Tavern Signs: Contemporary Hooked Rugs and the Stories They Tell.

Classified Board

Participants wishing to sell used hooking equipment can post the item on the "classified board" along with their cell phone number. The seller will keep the item that is for sale and the buyer will call the seller on their cell phone at the hook-in. The two can discuss the item and the terms of the sale.

Come and enjoy the day with your rug hooking friends!
