When Pigs Fly

***** Please note:  Our next meeting will be Tuesday, September 20, 2016 at 7 PM.  Please DO NOT arrive early -- another group is meeting before hand. *****

Judy Warasila's original rug, When Pigs Fly, won first place at the Peconic Ruggers Rug Show this past weekend at Hallockville.  Other winners were: 2nd Place: Ham and Eggs by Louise Hulbert, 3rd Place: Fall Colors by June Bassemir, Favorite Pig: Gracy's Pig Pillow by Denise Johnson, and Best in Show: North Fork Bounty by Rhona Vandernoth.  We had a great turn out -- thanks to all the visitors who participated by voting for their favorites.

It was a hot and sticky weekend on the farm.  Many thanks to all the members who came to hang the show on Friday, and those who stayed to take it down on Sunday evening.  Special thanks to Louise and Barbara's husbands, our clean up crew.

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.
