Snow Day: Clean Your Rugs!

We are in the midst of the Storm of the Century according to the weathermen.  It's the Great Blizzard of 2015.  Thankfully, it is a fairly light snow and not too bad to shovel, except that there is just SO MUCH OF IT!  So why not take advantage of all this precipitation?  Give your rugs a cleaning. Throw them out in the snow, cover, and then sweep clean with a whisk broom.  You'll be amazed at how bright and fresh they will look!

A Full House

We had a full house at our Holiday Hook In on Saturday.  It was great to see so many members and their new and recently completed projects.  Lunch was catered by Panera and Costco and was, as always, delicious.  Thank you, Louise, for picking it up, and thank you Sue, for bringing the drinks and setting things up, and to all the members who helped with set up and breakdown.

Our next meeting is an open hook in on February 28, 2015, at the Riverhead Library Craft Room #1, 10 to 3.  This one is a pot luck, so bring something delicious to share, as well as your hooking.

November Meeting

Our next meeting will take place on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at 7 pm at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church on the Main Road.  Bring your hooking, of course!  This will be our last meeting until the new year.

We had terrific attendance at the last meeting.  Here are some photographs of what we are working on.

Several members will be participating in the North Fork Designer Show House Christmas show and sale at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church Manse.  We will have a small room chock a block with hooked rugs and ornaments for sale.  Please stop by and see us.
