HOLMDEL, NJ -- From Saturday, April 24 through Sunday, May 2, Historic Longstreet Farm, Longstreet Road, Holmdel, will host a Hooked Rug Exhibit featuring works from Association of Traditional Rug Hooking Artists members. If you plan your visit the weekend of April 24 & 25, you can also enjoy Wool Days/Sheep Shearing from 12noon-3pm and see fleece as it is sheared from the sheep, spun into wool and hooked into rugs.

The Hooked Rug Exhibit remains at Historic Longstreet Farm through Weekend in Old Monmouth, May 1-2, a county-wide event when most historic sites are opened to the public.
