Combining Rug Hooking & Braiding

Several guild members spent this past Friday and Saturday learning to add braids to hooked mats from Kris McDermott, co-author of Combining Rug Hooking & Braiding, Basics, Borders & Beyond.
Kris brought several pieces of her own, as well as some really well-done visual aids to share with us. We all brought 2 small hooked pieces, one a 6 inch square with a 2.25 circle left unhooked, and a 6-inch circle.  There was a sharp learning curve on Friday, but we were all a little more relaxed and experienced on Saturday morning.  By Saturday afternoon, we were all beaming with pride at our accomplishments.

February Winter Hook In

The Peconic Ruggers Hook In on February 15th had a good turnout despite the threat of snow. The pot luck event was enjoyed by all, with a delicious spread of food from appetizers to desserts brought by our members. The rugs were beautiful, as always, and the conversation was interesting and varied. We are all looking forward to our next hook ins this summer during July and August.

Holiday Hook In

The Guild celebrated the holidays this past Saturday with a hook-in at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church.  Although we had to slosh through the rain and fog, we were warm and cosy in the church hall.  We had a delicious catered lunch with some home baked sweets as well and lots of conversation and rug hooking.
