If you are unable to find a class to learn this traditional craft then why not learn with one of of my kits!

2015 - I am now on the national retail electronic system for the NATIONAL TRUST so any property can now order my kits
The Proddy Kit was approved for Cornwall region of the NATIONAL TRUST retail department in 2010

The Hooky Kit and Lavender Bag kit were approved by the NATIONAL TRUST in 2011
Patchwork Cushion Kit and Squirrel Kit October 2014

The kit is a ‘Teaching and Learning’ kit that I have devised, using my experience of distance learning as an Open University Tutor, to enable an individual to be able to ‘do’ the craft of rag rugging. 

The small sample in the kit ‘guides’ and ‘supports’ the learning process and ensures success.  It has been developed from the interest to learn the craft from the visitors I meet when demonstrating at Clovelly.
Proddy Kit


The purchaser can start immediately and only requires a pair of scissors to cut the fabric pieces.  The kit has sufficient fabric to commence, although requiring further fabric to complete the rug.   It is often having to collect resources prior to starting a craft which can dampen the immediacy and enthusiasm to 'do'.

Rag rugging is a process of recycling and this is carried through into the kit, the enclosed fabric is recycled and marked out to guide how to cut out the fabric pieces.  The enclosed piece of hessian is of a size that is achievable and the project can be completed.

The price is also at an affordable one thereby making it accessible to families.

"I really enjoyed meeting you and completing the lavender bag in the glorious sunshine at the quay in Clovelly.

I could not think of anything better than sitting in the sun, watching people come and go, in peace and tranquillity and completing my lovely lavender bag. I haven't yet stitched it but will do this on the weekend and I am going to give it to my mum".
