Long Island Fiber Festival & June Meeting Time

We had interesting weather over the course of the three days of the Long Island Fleece and Fiber Fair at Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead. Thunderstorms rolled in on Friday as we set up, heat hit on Saturday with wild wind overnight that blew tents away, and cold temps on Sunday.  Here is a photo of the two Judys trying to stay warm on Sunday.

Please send healing thoughts to both Judy Lambros and Judy Warisilla, as they have both undergone surgery this month and are recovering.

The raffle rug is done and dusted and raffle tickets are available.  If you are a guild member, please take some to sell.  If you are not a guild member, please buy some!  Contact our treasurer Margaret at  Margaret also has the guild's supply of linen and monks cloth.  If you need either, let her know and she will bring it to the next meeting.

The Quiet Corner Guild in Connecticut is having a hook-in on Saturday, June 18, from 9 to 3 at the South Woodstock, CT Fairgrounds.  The cost is $15, which includes door prizes, a raffle ticket, snacks and beverages all day. $5 for walk-in vendor shopping only. Vendors: Benita Raleigh, Margaret Arraj, Sandy Mariecki, Yankee Peddler, Paisley Studio, Fluff & Peachy Bean, Donna Swanson, Joyce DiGregorio Design, Seaside Rug Hooking, and Raven's Gate Primitives.
