The Four-Legged Friends of Vermont Furniture Makers

The Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers membership is scattered from corner to corner across the breadth and stretch of the Green Mountains. Our furniture shops dapple the map… from the picturesque villages of southern and central Vermont, up to the Kingdom and down through the Islands. Some of us are pretty remote and our trusty companions keep us company while we work.

Last week a few of us opened our shops to friends from Route 7 Social. We’re prepping for a fresh round of studio visit blog posts. And while we spent a time talking shop, their sidekick Sophie enjoyed meeting new friends. We thought you might get a kick out of meeting them, too.
