One hour practical workshop where you learn 2 traditional rag rug techniques scaled down to make a flower which you could use later to decorate a bag or make a brooch. The centre is hooked with yarn then fabric petals are progged around it. Both techniques could be used for larger projects like rugs or wall art. The Festival of Quilts is Europe’s leading patchwork and quilting event attracting over 25,000 quilters from all over the world. The show is a celebration of quilting in all its forms, with over 300 exhibitors offering essential supplies, world-class galleries of quilts from leading international makers, 350 workshops, talks and demos plus a magnificent display of over 800 competition quilts.
