Learn two vintage rag rug techniques and make a sampler or start a project like a seat mat or rag rug. Progging gives a shaggy finish when small pieces of fabric are pushed or pulled through a backing. Hooking is used for detailed or pictorial work as thin strips of fabric or yarn are hooked up in loops through a backing fabric. Granny would have used old clothes and food sacking.
(Social distancing etc. will be observed).
