The new registration date for the 2017 ATHA Biennial will be held on Saturday, February 25th at 10:00 am Eastern Standard Time. It will be posted on the ATHA Website, but you can help us by sharing this information with everyone you know. Our IT professional assures us that what happened today will be fixed and everything will go smoothly. Do be aware that everyone will be trying to get in at once, and you may have a delay in getting in but the whole system won’t go down. Again, I appreciate your patience and kindness as the Registration volunteers worked all day to get this sorted out. It was frustrating for them as well.
Celia Esala, Co-Chair 2017 ATHA Biennial
Let ATHA start you on your personal creative journey today...ATHA leads the way in providing resources across the globe for everyone who has an interest in rug hooking—whether you just pulled your first loop or have been rug hooking for years. We truly believe the creativity of our members with their broad and diverse experience will inspire you. This creative energy is what keeps ATHA members abreast of the latest ideas and resources available for this art form. This large pool of resources gives everyone the tools they need to be a part of this grand tradition of self-expression.
With over 4,000 members, most likely there is an ATHA chapter or member in your community!
This opportunity is to be a part of a local ATHA chapter near you. Over 70+ ATHA chapters are in existence today and more are being started all the time. The chapters form this creative community by having regular meetings, special programs, educational resources, public shows and hook-ins. Check the map on this page and see if there is an ATHA Chapter near you.
Once you become a part of the ATHA community, you will be amazed at the wealth of information and encouragement each ATHA chapter and the magazine, Art of Rug Hooking provides its members. We hope you will attend a local ATHA meeting in your community so you can experience firsthand the creative talents of our members.
If there is not an ATHA chapter in your area, that does not mean you cannot be a part of this exciting community. By joining ATHA, you become a part of the worldwide ATHA community and get the bimonthly magazine, Art of Rug Hooking and can connect with members worldwide.
