Rag Rug Class

For those of you wondering when our next Rag Rug Class is going to be held; it will be August 12th at 1:00 pm.  This is an excellent project for those "Why did I buy this?" fabrics. 
This is a 3 hour class.  We ask that you register and recommend that you pick up your supply list no later than 1 week prior to class.   This way you will have time to do the prep work.      

Just look at the gorgeous rug that one of our students brought in after taking the class.

Great job Mary!

Here is a closer look.  Just beautiful.
