This page is information for those who have already registered, but feel free to check it out if you are considering registering as well!  We will post important updates and information here through out the year.  


6 Months Prior to Rug School

Make sure you have told us whether you want a single room, double room or will be commuting.

Review the draft agenda at the bottom of the page and begin to plan your travel as needed.

Think about whether you will need extra nights at the hotel. Do you want to come in a day early or leave a day late? Let us know, we handle all room bookings for you!

Are you flying in? Typically we can provide transportation to and from the Burlington, Vermont Airport.  Let us know your travel plans and we can help!

3 Months Prior to Rug School

Invoices got out March 1 and are due in full April 1. They go out via email, if you have not seen yours by March 5, please let us know and we can resend it.

Your teacher will reach out to you between April 1 and May 1.  If you have not heard from your teacher by May 1, please let us know and we can help make the connection (sometimes emails get lost in cyberspace). Our expectation for our teachers is no more than one or two emails with each student. This gives your teacher an opportunity to convey important information to you prior to class and gives you an opportunity to ask essential questions. Please be respectful of their time.

A week before

Make sure you have paid your invoice.

Begin to pack - make sure you have your project, cutter, hook, scissors and frame.  If you need to borrow a cutter or a frame, let us know, we can help!

Think about whether you will want a light or not. Though the lighting is pretty good, it is still a hotel and you may not be satisfied with the light available.

Pack your finished rugs!  We will have a student focused exhibit this year! No need to pre-register and there is no cost.  Just bring them with you!

When you Arrive

The address of the hotel is: 100 State Street, Montpelier, Vermont.  Curious about the hotel?  Check out their home page:

When you arrive, you can check in at the front desk and they will give you your packet and name tag (this goes for commuters too!).

Check in is between 11-1, with a welcome lunch to follow. However, feel free to arrive early and shop! Our shop is located in the Ethan Allen room right off the main lobby and will open at 6AM every day!

All classes are located in the hotel. EXCEPT:
- The Art of Plein Air with Lori LaBerge
- A Beginner's Guide to Advanced Techniques with Mariah Krauss
These classes are located at 2838 County Road in Montpelier. We suggest you use google maps and get directions a head of time.
