Long Island Fiber Festival & June Meeting Time

We had interesting weather over the course of the three days of the Long Island Fleece and Fiber Fair at Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead. Thunderstorms rolled in on Friday as we set up, heat hit on Saturday with wild wind overnight that blew tents away, and cold temps on Sunday.  Here is a photo of the two Judys trying to stay warm on Sunday.

Please send healing thoughts to both Judy Lambros and Judy Warisilla, as they have both undergone surgery this month and are recovering.

The raffle rug is done and dusted and raffle tickets are available.  If you are a guild member, please take some to sell.  If you are not a guild member, please buy some!  Contact our treasurer Margaret at  Margaret also has the guild's supply of linen and monks cloth.  If you need either, let her know and she will bring it to the next meeting.

The Quiet Corner Guild in Connecticut is having a hook-in on Saturday, June 18, from 9 to 3 at the South Woodstock, CT Fairgrounds.  The cost is $15, which includes door prizes, a raffle ticket, snacks and beverages all day. $5 for walk-in vendor shopping only. Vendors: Benita Raleigh, Margaret Arraj, Sandy Mariecki, Yankee Peddler, Paisley Studio, Fluff & Peachy Bean, Donna Swanson, Joyce DiGregorio Design, Seaside Rug Hooking, and Raven's Gate Primitives.

May Meeting

Our May meeting will take place at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church on Tuesday, May 17, 2016, 7 to 9 pm.  Bring your hooking and something for show and tell.

Several stalwart guild members manned the guild tent at the Long Island Fleece and Fiber Festival this past weekend.  It rained during set up in Friday.  Saturday was hot and sunny and sunscreen didn't keep us from getting sun burned.  On Sunday the wind nearly blew the tent over and dark clouds rolled in dropping the temperature.  It was a wild weekend of weather, for sure! Thank you one and all for coming out to set up, take down and demonstrate!

April Showers . . . and Our April Meeting

Our next meeting will take place on April 19, 2016, at the Riverhead Library, 5:30 to 8:30 pm.  As always, bring a project to work on, something to show off, and dinner, i you are so inclined, because our meeting will start so early.

We are all sending positive healing thoughts to our fearless leader, president Louise Hulbert, who is recovering from surgery.  Let's hope she feels well enough to attend the April meeting.

Thanks to Sue Egan for arranging the particulars of the May meeting, which will be held on May 17, 7 to 9 pm at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church.  The Church is also holding an event the Saturday before our meeting: The 5th Annual Douglas Moore Organ Concert will be held in the Church on Saturday, May 14th at 3 pm.  Two organists from Juilliard will be playing the Kilgen organ.  It's a wonderful event and all are invited.  Refreshments will follow the concert.

Here is some eye candy from the last meeting:
