URFG was founded in 2009 to stimulate and foster appreciation and education about rug hooking and other fiber arts within the State of Utah.
URFG members come from many regions throughout the State, and are a congenial mix of beginners, amateurs, professionals and fiber arts business representatives. Membership is $25.00 per year, and the year runs January 1st to December 31st. Membership entitles you to participate in events and meetings and also provides opportunities for you to enroll in seminars from nationally renown teachers each year (see "Events & Meetings" blog page for more details).
Our meetings and events are WONDERFUL! You will love the friends you will make, the things you will learn, and the amazing amount of fun you will have being a member of URFG. Come join us!
- Access to all guild meetings and events. We are planning 2 events (the annual hook-in and annual retreat) and 4 meetings per year. Meetings will be free, although occasionally there may be a small materials fee. Bring a friend to the meetings!
- Gifts and treats at the meetings and events.
- Discounted guild rate and advance, priority registration for conferences featuring national teachers such as Ali Strebel and Maggie Bonanomi.
- Many opportunities to grow your rug hooking and fiber art education and skills!
