The general meeting of ARG was held Saturday evening welcoming the new recipients of the TIGHR Founders Cup (the International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers) JO FRANCO and JUDITH STEPHENS.  These two ladies were presented the cup for their dedication to the International Guild and rughooking, having networked their passion for the traditional craft into ARG and hosts of TIGHR for the past three years.  The new officers for ARG were sworn in and are listed under Board Members 

The Stationmasters Gallery concurrently exhibited dozens of hooked, prodded and fiber works by members.
