2012 Peconic Ruggers Rug Show and Sale

Exciting news!!  Our 2012 rug show is coming up so quickly.  This year it is being held in conjunction with the  Hallockville Fall Festival, September 15 & 16: 32nd Annual Hallockville Fall Festival and Craft Show. A North Fork tradition featuring artisan vendors, food, music, children's games, animals, and demonstrations of traditional crafts. 10 AM to 4 PM. Fee.
Admission to the festival gives you admission to our show and sale. We will transform the Naugles Barn into a fiber fest for your eyes.  We will display our rugs on the barn walls, give informal demonstrations on hooking, have a mini workshop to try it out for yourself (details TBD), and vendors selling the most beautiful dyed, off the bolt and recycled wool; used cutters, hooks, frames and books.  It is a fantastic opportunity to buy supplies in person.

Here are some pictures from the 2010 show taken by Clara Jauquet.  We had special guests last time, the Wool Street Journal and g.woolikers were here with us.  What a lovely trio!!

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.
