Here's a heads up: our next meeting will not be the third Tuesday of September! We will instead meet on Tuesday, September 9, 2014, 7 to 9 PM, at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church, to do last minute preparations for the rug show the following weekend. Please bring whatever rugs you want included in the show to the meeting, along with the appropriate printed labels that Louise will be emailing to you shortly. This will be the last day rug entries will be accepted.
If you can help with the show -- hanging rugs, selling raffle tickets, demonstrating, teaching a make-and-take class, taking the show down -- please contact Louise at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because the show will be held in tandem with the Hallockville Fall Festival, we are sure to have a fabulous turn out. Please participate and help make this show the best one yet!

Another relaxing and interesting hook in took place on March 18th. Lots of pictures below. Don't forget we are meeting again at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church next month, Tuesday, April 15th, because the Riverhead Historical Society is undergoing renovations. See you then!

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.
