Come See!

"Gail Horton, a renowned fibre artist from Greenport, NY,  was instrumental in starting the Peconic Ruggers rug hooking guild. 

She and a friend Cindy Roe, a talented artist and photographer, have joined forces in a unique show currently on display in the Gallery of the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Library, Case’s Lane, Cutchogue from September thru October with an Artists’s Reception on Saturday, October 12 from 1-3 p.m.

Entitled, “Dusk ‘Til Dawn,” it combines Gail’s use of traditional rug hooking  and Cindy’s paintings."

Hallockville Fall Festival 2013

The Hallockville Fall Festival was a tremendous success. The beautiful weather brought out crowds
of people. Thanks to all the guild members who came out to demonstrate and to Louise and Sue for
all their hard work.

July 2013 Hook-in

The first of our summer hook-ins took place at the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church on Saturday, July 13th. Despite the hot weather and a bit of rain, the turnout was good. The fact that we had 3 fans certainly helped. Many beautiful projects were worked on, accompanied by interesting conversation. We enjoyed delicious rice salad, fruit salad and cookies. Everyone is looking forward to the next time we get together at the hook-in in August.

Holiday Party 2012

Our holiday party, which took place on January 19th, was a wonderful, well attended gathering.  As usual, there were so many beautiful rugs being worked on. Lunch was catered and delicious, with many desserts provided by our members. The raffle rug drawing was held, with Jennifer picking the winner, who will be notified of her good fortune. A wool swap of a fat quarter also added to the fun.
Good company and conversation was had by all. Many thanks to Louise and Sue for all their hard work in putting together this enjoyable day.
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.
