Make Rugs From Old Clothes
But not only rugs... cushion covers, bags, wall hangings. A rug is just the start! What do you do with clothes that are too far 'gone' for the charity shop?
Now you can re-purpose them into family heirlooms.
Low Cost Hobby
You can make rugs for very little, once you know how. Just a piece of hessian and some cosy fire-side time. Finally a worthwhile hobby that makes something useful and beautiful and that doesn't break the piggy bank.
No Sewing Skills Needed
Not a sew-er? Neither am I. You don't need to be able to sew to make a rag rug. If you can turn over a big hem with rough unseen stitches, that's an advantage, however the hem can be Bondawebbed if you wish.
"Eeek I'm so excited, I have almost finished my first rag rug, and am in love with it if I say so myself. I would never have got this far, learning on my own, the Zoom Rag Rugging meet ups were motivational as I wanted to do a bit more to show progress each time. My daughters are instructed now to save all their old clothes for me and I will gift them a rug each in return."

"I took this rag-rugging course as part of a textiles degree, I needed to find inspiration for my final project. As a long term student of crafts I am a stickler for good teaching. The content of this course is accessible for all levels, Di presents the course material clearly and backs up everything with videos. Love the ethos of only natural materials in the kit too."
Ron and Barbara
"We were both chatting one day discussing childhood and we both remembered cutting bits of cloth for our grannies rugs. We decided to learn ourselves as we couldn't remember the nitty gritty as we were just given the cutting jobs. Not able to get to a regular course easily due to Barbaras occasional ill health, tried YouTube (crazy world) then found this. We have just finished, we only bought one course but worked through it on separate 'his and her' rugs Very happy with the results. Thanks, Ron."
