Description

The Story Behind Green Mountain Hooked Rugs

Owned and operated by a fourth-generation rug maker, Green Mountain Hooked Rugs in Montpelier, Vermont, has been offering supplies and classes for the beginning rug hooker to the experienced textile artist for more than twenty-five years.

A Family Tradition

Owner and custom-dyeing specialist Stephanie Allen-Krauss quips that she “was raised on dye spoons, wool dust, and fabric scraps,” having hooked her first rug at age five. This family tradition began with Stephanie’s great–grandmother, Philena Moxley, who created and stamped embroidery and rug patterns from 1865 to1882 at her shop, the PC Moxley Dry Goods Store, in Lowell, Massachusetts. Stephanie’s mother, Anne Ashworth, a nationally recognized rug hooker, worked as a freelance custom dyer, and in 1981 co-founded the acclaimed Green Mountain Rug School, which Stephanie and her family continue to operate today.

Stephanie also offers custom dyeing, rug hooking classes at the shop, private lessons, and is available to teach classes at other rug schools, camps or for groups.
