Session 2: September 16th – September 21st, 2018
Co-Directors: Beverley Mulcahy and Benita Watford Raleigh

The Country Inn Rug School will again be at the Woodbound Inn in Rindge, NH.  It’s a lovely country setting along the shore of Lake Contoocook with a wonderful and well-lit space for a great hooking week. All our teachers are excellent and will be delighted to work with you on whatever you choose. Any designer’s patterns are welcome including your own original designs.  They will color plan and dye for you or provide whatever information you need if you wish to do some or all your own dyeing.  They will also be happy to work with ‘as is’ or recycled wools if you prefer.  Our goal is to provide what you wish for this time together.  We have also planned some exciting ‘after class’ special classes to entice you.


Session 1: September 9th – September 14th, 2018
Betty McClentic, Sarah Guilani, Vivily Powers, and Cyndy Duade will be our teachers for Session 1.

Did You Know: Betty McClentic was one of the teachers in 1993, when Country Inn Rug School also had two sessions. In fact, Betty remembers teaching at CIRS every year since in 1975, when Betty Maley was Director, Lois Dugal was Assistant-Director and the school was held at Mount Saint Mary’s in Hookset, New Hampshire! 2018 will be Betty’s 43rd year!  

Session 2: September 16th – September 21st, 2018
Pam Bartlett, Lisa Chaloner, Ingrid Hieronimus and Kathy McPartlan will be our teachers for Session 2

Exhibit Information:

Please bring your completed pieces (again, any designer’s) for our exhibit.  This is always special and each year gets better.  We’re always delighted to welcome visitors to enjoy our beautiful creations.   We will have our Country Inn Boutique open and stocked with goodies for you.  As a special treat for us, The Dorr Mill Store will deliver, at no cost, any items you wish to pre-order from them.
