Holiday Hook In!!!

Our Holiday Hook In -- for members only -- will be on Saturday, January 28, 2017 from 10 to 3 at the Riverhead Library.  Please note the change in date and venue.  The guild is providing lunch, so please be sure to let Louise know if you will be attending.  Bring your current project as well as something for show and tell.  And don't forget to bring your dues -- still only $20 a year!

We would be remiss not to note the passing of guild member Agnes Abramski.  Agnes mastered rug hooking the minute she picked up her hook!  Every rug she made was wonderful.  She and her granddaughter were also expert raffle ticket salesmen.  We will miss her.

November Meeting

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church, 7 to 9 pm.  Please do not arrive early -- there is another group meeting before us.  Wait for them to leave before you enter the room.  We will finalize plans for our next raffle rug.

At the October meeting, we decided on our challenge for the 2018 Rug Show: Take a Walk on the Wild Side: a Jungle Challenge.  Put your thinking cap on and come up with some creative designs to hook for the show.  You have almost two years to complete a jungle themed rug!

As always, there will not be a meeting in December.

Dates have been set for our winter hook ins.  Mark these dates on your calendars: Saturday, January 21, 2017 (site to be announced) and Saturday, February 18, 2017 at the Cutchogue Library Community Room.  The January hook in will be our holiday celebration with a catered lunch -- for members only.  The February hook in is open to all.

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.
