Jennifer has been a GMRHG member for 20 years and joined the Board in 2013. She has been Secretary and President during her terms. Her true love is showing the creations of our members. In the past few years she has helped put on a rug show at the Pompanoosuc Mills furniture store in Thetford Vermont as well as Chairing/co-chairing the Hooked in the Mountains Show in 2016 and 2018.
When the Covid pandemic made an in-person Show impossible she was interested in doing an online Show (as was Barb Ackemann). At first, the reality of doing an online Show seemed overwhelming so the idea just percolated. But after a prompt from Deb Smith at RHM and the memory of a positive sentiment coming from Barb Ackemann about doing the bulk of the work, she decided to push the idea along.
She helped organize the photography shoots so that members could send in great photos of their work. An online Show is all about quality images because we will not see the real thing. She cannot wait to have in-person shows again BUT we have all learned a lot by doing a virtual Show. Several good things about it being virtual are the length of time the show will be up AND that we can learn a lot more about the artists.
