A Successful Hook In!
We had a great day at the Peconic Ruggers hook in on Saturday. It was a full house -- we were packed to the gills! Members from LIGRA joined us, as did many of our own members who hadn't shown their faces for quite a while. Barbara and Judy did a tremendous job running their first group gathering, with the help of Jennifer, who supplied us with lots of sweet treats.
I have to thank Judy, Barbara, Jennifer and the entire guild for the very generous gift certificate to Rebecca Erb's The Wool Studio. If you don't know Rebecca's wool - lots of textures and tweeds, designed by her and made in Europe -- you really need to take a look. Like candy, they are hard to resist! Thank you, ladies!
I thoroughly enjoyed my first hook in as a non-board member -- although, as ususal, I talked a lot and hardly hooked. I sold some patterns and Barb sold some wool. I won a great Southern Living Cookbook as a door prize, too. All in all, a profitable day!
