“I love your Rag Rug workshop video and the first of your books. They’re what inspired me to take up rugging, having only previously done some Readicut kits long ago. It’s all very exciting! Best wishes for 2017” Gill
“I thank you so much for making the video Rag Rug Workshop. I’ve just finished watching and have to say it was very inspiring. Again, much appreciation for your beautiful gallery and thorough explanations. I can’t wait to start a rug of my own.” Sheila H, Deland, Florida
