Our March meeting will take place tomorrow evening -- 7 pm to 9 pm at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church. Bring something to work on and something to share. Let's all think spring and wish away this snow that just won't melt!
The guild has purchased a bolt of natural linen from Searsport Rug Hooking. It is 64 inches wide and suitable for a 5 cut and up. The cost is $24 per yard for guild members. Please contact Louise if you would like to purchase some -- the bolt is too heavy to bring to the meeting.
If you have not yet paid your dues, please do so! The dues are still a very reasonable $20.
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!
The Peconic Ruggers, started by Gail Horton in 1996, is a rug hooking guild from the North Fork of Long Island, New York. We meet monthly at the beautiful Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead, New York.
