Penny Rugging Class: 2 Days

Penny rugs emerged in the nineteenth century when thrifty homemakers used wool scraps from old clothing to create decorative table toppers, seat covers and rugs. The wool was boiled in water and, when dry, the felted wool was cut using coins as templates – hence the name. These were then stitched onto a cloth backing and embellished with embroidery.

Students in this two-day class will complete a heart-themed penny rug using (wool) felt applique and various stitches. A supply kit is included in the cost. Students should bring paper cutting scissors, fabric cutting scissors, and thimble (if needed) and reading glasses for close work (if needed).
