WORKSHOP: Make a Rag Rug

Join Naomi Huntsman from The Sewloist to learn the technique of making rag rugs from up-cycled fabric and remnants. Using only a safety pin and strips of fabric, you will make the beginnings of a rag rug. A selection of fabrics will be provided, however you are encouraged to bring your own lightweight woven cottons that can be torn into strips. The process will take more than the allocated two hours; you will finish your rag rug at home.

Meet Naomi at the Craft & Quilt Fair in these locations!
