Peconic Ruggers on Display!

The Peconic Ruggers have a lot of news this month!

We are pleased to announce that the guild has a fabulous display of rugs mounted in the cases at the Riverhead Library for the entire month of April.  Thanks to Louise and everyone who contributed and hung the show.  The display is in the case on the wall to the left of the elevator.

Our meeting this month will also be at the Riverhead Library Tuesday, April 18, 2017, from 5:30 to 8:30 PM down in the craft room.  As always, bring something to work on and something for show and tell.  It's an early meeting, so feel free to bring your dinner along, too.  Our intrepid treasurer Margaret is still collecting dues if you have not yet paid them.

Louise and Andrea have created a Facebook page for the guild.  Members may post photos of their work.  Please share our page with your friends.

Don't forget the Long Island Fleece and Fiber Fair, May 20 & 21, 2017 at Hallockville Museum Farm.  The guild will demonstrating outside the Naugles Barn.  See Louise to volunteer with demonstrating, set up and take down.  Many hands make light work!

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.
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.
