Could sharing your rag rug knowledge help someone?

Posted by Erin Halvorsen on

Hello there. Hope you will enjoy reading and thinking about the possibilities of sharing your rag rug knowledge with someone.

This is just 2 brief stories how rag rugs have helped give hours of enjoyment. Perhaps you know someone you can sit down with and help them learn how to make rag rugs. Share with someone that may have eye limitations and can not crochet with standard yarn and hooks, arthritis, little money for entertainment, restricted mobility or somewhat house bound due to circumstances.

Story 1

I have a lovely woman that has called me on the phone to help her place a hook order because ordering on the computer is difficult with her vision. She can not crochet with yarn and standard hooks any more but can crochet rag rugs with sheet yarn. She is delighted with a new chapter of creating and crocheting.

Story 2

This is an excerpt from Margaret  Wittman's emails and her latest rug.  

"We care for my husband's brother who suffers from Alzheimers disease. Having a creative outlet has helped me to maintain my sanity when things get difficult. I've had so much fun designing and creating rag rugs for friends and family! I've lost count on how many I've done and given as gifts. My current project is making one for each of the ladies in our congregation. So far, everyone is delighted to receive their very own rag rug!
I've recommended your tutorials to several people, and they've been just as intrigued.
Again, I say thank you for providing that outlet."
Margaret, Thank you for sharing your latest rug and your inspiring story.
