Hallockville Fall Festival 2013

The Peconic Ruggers had another spectacular weekend at the Hallockville Museum Farm Fall Festival: blue skies, lots of sunshine, crisp northwest winds and lots of interesting people.  Lots of our members showed up to demonstrate and sell their wares.  We hooked a lot, and talked a lot (that would be me), and got sunburn (that would be me, too).  Margaret pointed out that a lot of men were really interested in our work --  and in Louise's Townsend cutter.  We sold several kits to people who want to learn to hook, and lots of wool to established hookers and also to quilters.  (The Eastern Long Island Quilter's Guild had a lovely quilt show in the big barn.)  And I sold a rug!  All in all --despite the sunburn -- it was a great weekend.  We are already looking forward to next year!

You are lucky to have had such nice weather. We've ha a wet weekend and although the sun came out yesterday, we are still having rain today.

It sounds like you had a great time with your rugger friends. I'm glad that you sold a rug and some beginners kits. Having men interested in hooking is very nice.
