Here is Connie’s T-shirt rug. She did say she works on it every day but I don’t know….. Which just goes to show its not too late for YOU to start your rug on the Rug Along if you’re still thinking about it. We’re still sending out books and DVDs so if you’re still interested send $20 to Mary Etherington, 2345 Palm Ave. Garner, IA 50438 to receive the Rugs From Rags book and DVD by Country Threads. You’ll receive the 3rd version of the book which is in color and by far our best effort. The DVD only is available for $8.00 and is absolutely necessary because I simply cannot explain the motions on this printed page. The DVD cannot tell you how to build the frame nor give you all the yardage requirements. You’ll need the book for that. So…. You need both the latest book and DVD.
Here is Jan Hebert’s finished rug. Doesn’t it look nice by that chest of drawers?
I loved reading the comments about Mary Ellen Hopkins and reminiscing about those retreats I attended. Wasn’t she one of a kind? Honestly I think I could have learned everything I ever needed to know from her book “It’s Okay If You Sit On My Quilt Book”. She signed my book in 1986 and 1988. I traveled to Las Vegas twice and Connie and I went together to a retreat in Maine in the mid 90s. What a special lady.
