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.

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

Members Only Hook In

Once again the guild will have its yearly celebration -- for members only -- on January 16, 2016 at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church, 10 to 3.  Lunch will be catered, so just bring along your current hooking project and anything you would like to share with the group.  And don't forget your annual dues! They are still only $20! Please let Louise know if you are coming so she can order the correct amount of food.

We would like to extend its sincere thanks to Sue Egan for her many years of service to the Peconic Ruggers as Treasurer.  Sue has taken great care of our funds as well as doing many other things from setting up rug shows to booking our venues.  She will still be around, and, knowing Sue, will still be helping out whenever its needed.  Thank you Sue!

We would also like to welcome our new Treasurer, Margaret Tripp-Zenk -- aka the fasted hooker east of the Mississippi.  Margaret is a long time member of the guild, an avid rug maker and a very generous guild member.  Thanks for taken on the job, Margaret.

We will have another Saturday hook in in February which will be open to all.  It will probably be held at the Riverhead Library, but the room is not booked yet.  Stay tuned for more information.
