Those in attendance at the May meeting enjoyed a presentation from Peg Irish after thanking Cheri for all her work as past President, the work of the other officers whose terms were up, and excepting the new slate of officers presented. A big welcome to our new President Lauri Troutman.
Peg Irish has been hooking since 1980, when she began taking classes with teacher and Maine Tin Pedlar member Lois Dugal. She was immediately captivated by the textures and colors possible in rug hooking, and quickly knew that she needed to create her own designs and dye her own fabrics. She relies heavily on her own photography and basic geometric designs when creating new projects. Peg’s work has been featured in numerous publications and she is a juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen. Her work has been exhibited in numerous juried and invitational shows. She has curated several fiber arts and hooked rug exhibits on Cape Cod. Peg admits to being an “idea person”, always stimulated by anew creative challenge.
