Do you know about the POTTON VALLEY QUILTERS???

By camilla @ 10:15 am

The TOUR des ARTS will celebrate 30 years of Passion during the week of July 18 thru 22, 2018.  If you have not ever visited this event, please try to do it this July. You will never forget the wonderful people and their arts.  From where I am in North Troy, your first stop should be the POTTON VALLEY QUILTERS at the Reilly House in Mansonville!  I cannot say enough wonderful words for these ladies, so I will just show you  who they are.

Take a look at the work of Ann Young.  The Wooden Horse Arts Guild is proud to have Ann as one of our Sponsors.  I am looking at one of her latest drawings. What is this lovely young woman thinking?

                              A Common Thread

Stitches and Stories from Fiber Artists Near and Far 





The Queen of the Night, as a triptych with its companion pieces.

MAC Center for the Arts presents a new exhibition, A COMMON THREAD – Stitches and Stories from Fiber Artists Near and Far. Opening Reception will be May 11, from 5-7 in the lower gallery; free and open to the public.

The exclusive showcase of fiber arts is a cornucopia of visual delights demonstrating a wide range of accomplishment and skill.  A myriad of the traditional and contemporary, the practical and the whimsical, all of which tell a personal story.  Some of those stories will accompany work on exhibit.

This contemporary fiber show is full of examples that blur the lines between fine art and fine craft; updating or innovating traditional practices and materials or by incorporating other disciplines into fiber. The exhibition includes works in weaving, felting, surface design, knitting, art quilts and art to wear and will be on display from May 11 – July 28.  Come witness the fabric of our lives.  For more information, please stop in during regular hours MAC, Winter Tuesday –  Saturday 10-5 and Summer (after Memorial Day) Monday – Saturday 10-5; call 802 324 1966; or visit our website at

Missing friends

By camilla @ 3:12 pm

Phyllis J. Hammond was a wonderful artist and a great friend of the Wooden Horse Arts Guild.  She is missed by so many of us.  Several months before she passed away, she sent a lovely post card – knowing how much I love her paintings of the Icelandic Horses, she made sure that I had a copy.  It will always be a special treasure. If you want to know more about this outstanding artist, see

What does one do on a chilly afternoon when one has “nothing to do”?  This afternoon, I began to wonder how many people had ever wandered into the website or the BLOG of the Wooden Horse Arts Guild.  

So, while sipping my cup of cocoa I began to search (sort of). 

Our website was designed and activated by our webmaster, Steven Maas, in December, 2006.  Steve put on the counter in 2012.  The number of persons  who have seen the site (or, maybe just zoomed through – who knows).  In any case, the count is now 27,000.  Not too bad and we think that at least some of those people have enjoyed our efforts.  Steve set up the Blog for me in 2010..the counter in 2015.  The number is almost 10,000.   As you know, the Blog page is also on the Wooden Horse Arts Guild Blog FaceBook page. That gives you an extra place to look for us.

We hope that you have enjoyed the comings and goings of the WHAG, and the many events we talk about around the Northeast Kingdom and many places beyond.   Let us know!
