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:

Holiday Hook In 2016

We had another delightful day of hooking and eating two Saturdays ago.  Lots of eye candy, as well as good food from Panera -- thank you, Louise, for catering our party!

Our next hook in is open to one and all and will take place on February 13, 2016, at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church.  Bring your lunch and your hooking and a finished project our two to share. Margaret, our new treasurer, will be collecting dues for the year.   Louise, Sarah and Judy will have some supplies for sale.  If you are new to hooking or just new to our guild, please join us.  We always have a splendid time together.

Sally's Spaniels

rug hooked by Sally McGuire

Sue Egan just sent this photograph of her sister Sally's latest rug -- two sweet spaniels.  What fun -- a really great background, too.
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.
