I'm defrosting and getting back on track....


Judy Lambros has stepped down from her post as co-president. Judy has a heart of gold and a great spirit. I thank her for all of her guidance, encouragement and contributions to the guild. She remains very active within the guild and I look forward to seeing her at our meetings and events.


Saturday, May 21, 10am - 5pm. (Rain Date, Sunday, May 22 10am - 5pm)

We will be in a tent demonstrating rug hooking. Last year was the first year and it was a really fun day! There are fiber artists - vending and demonstrating, alpacas, sheep, horses, herding dogs and herding demonstrations….. it is a great family festival that will grow each year.

If you plan to join us, bring a chair and your current project and some rugs to hang for display. I hope to see you there, its great fun.


We have three events scheduled for 2011.

July 29 and 30 - Friday and Saturday - Tina from G Woolikers will come from Georgia and teach us a pattern designed specifically for the Peconic Ruggers Guild by The Wool Street Journal. The class will be held at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church. Details will follow as they become finalized.

October 22 - Saturday - Louise Hulbert, a long time member of both the Peconic Ruggers and LIGRA, will teach a dye workshop at her studio.

Date TBD - Saturday - Elizabeth Palmer-Buchtman, Designs from Fenwood, will return to teach a different felting technique - Nuno Felting.


Jennifer - President
Sue - Treasurer
Sarah  - PRPR

It’s no fun doing it alone, the more the merrier! We are always looking for you to help us demonstrate at fairs, participate in meetings and decision making, workshop/lecture preparation, and newsletter/blog contributions. Come on down!
