Our fortnightly rag rug coffee morning in Hertfordshire is something I really look forward to every month. It’s a lovely way to spend a couple of hours chatting with other rag ruggers, getting advice and feedback on your latest rag rug project, and of course having a nice cuppa and a biscuit or two!
When you first learn how to rag rug, you’re full of inspiration, with a vision of creating something spectacular. And like with anything in life, if you don’t regularly commit your time to it, it just doesn’t get done. This is one of the reasons I started the fortnightly coffee morning, for my rag rug students to come along, hone their skills and to give them the motivation, space and time to complete their projects. Plus, I’d probably be rag rugging anyway, so it’s better to do it in good company!
Of course, when like-minded people get together, there are always lots of great (and funny) conversations, craft related and not. Our regulars have become friends and are very welcoming to newbies too! So why not come along and make the commitment to finish a piece? Whether it’s your first or your 50th, you’re very welcome here.
Here’s everything you need to know…
The rag rug coffee morning is open to anyone who has attended a Ragged Life workshop or who has bought a Ragged Life kit. In other words, some rag rug experience is necessary.
It takes place at our Ragged Life HQ in Great Wymondley, Hertfordshire in our cosy studio space. We’re based in the beautiful grounds of Delamere House, so travelling to the rag rug coffee morning feels like a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. For full directions on how to find us, email firstname.lastname@example.org
The coffee morning takes place every other Thursday morning from 10am – 12pm. However, you don’t need to come for the full two hours if you’re busy, you can drop in for however much time you can spare on the day.
It costs just £2 and includes unlimited tea, coffee and biscuits.
Other rag rug coffee morning FAQs:
Q1: Is there parking?
Yes, there is plenty of parking on site.
Q2: What should I bring along?
Bring along your current rag rug project, along with tools and materials. However, if you do forget anything, we have more rag rug tools on site.
Q3: Can I buy rag rug materials like hessian there?
Yes, as the coffee morning is at our Ragged Life HQ, we have plenty of hessian, tools and blanket yarn around for you to buy if you need them.
Q4: What if I need help with a project?
Definitely come along and we’ll be happy to offer advice. However, we won’t be full-on teaching in the coffee morning, it’s our time for relaxation too 🙂
