In pre-Civil War days, sewers used wool scraps and simple stitches to make table “rugs” of exuberant color and dizzying geometry. Evidenced by its popularity on Pinterest, this early American craft is making a comeback. Join us as we explore new stitches and the design potential of wool applique to create a penny rug mug mat or coaster to sit under your favorite coffee cup.
Please bring sewing scissors, paper scissors, pins and a Sharpie-type marker to class. Tuition includes Penny Rug Mug Mat kit.
