Gill Bullock reviewed: Rag rug/rag wreath making day in North Herefordshire

"Having been aware of rag rugs for many years - starting with sight of one in a museum many years ago, I hadn't realised that they are relatively straightforward. Jenny made us all feel very welcome and set a tone of sharing, support and just the right amount of guidance. Tips and historical notes were presented during the day. My own seat cover design evolved organically and I motored away to complete it in the time. Progging was addictive! "

Jenni's Rag Rugs responded:

" Thanks for your review Gill and the photos you sent of your beautiful seat mat using Japanese materials. I do enjoy the way projects evolve organically depending on the materials which are available. "

"I'd thoroughly recommend Jenni's rag rugging course. It was a perfect mix of inspiration and instruction. Lovely, informal atmosphere, with a delicious lunch and lots of tea and coffee to keep the chat flowing. I don't consider myself creative but, under Jenni's tuition, I was really happy with the seat pad I produced. It's such an accessible and addictive craft! Thank you Jenni."

Pauline Austin reviewed: Rag rug making day in the Cotswolds

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course, having wanted to try this craft for some time, but not having the confidence to start by myself. We were a small group and Jenni's relaxed, friendly demeanour made it very easy to learn the various styles of rag-rugging, giving me the confidence I needed to continue this new skill. Also the venue, The Guildhouse, Stanton, was amazing. Made the learning all the more enjoyable !"

" I enjoyed the day too. Thanks for your review Pauline and I'd be happy to put a picture of your work on my website. Keep on progging! Raggily Jenni"

Jacki Brigden reviewed: Learn traditional rag rug techniques at Wool@J13

"I attended the one day course held by Jenni Stuart-Anderson at the Blue Ginger Gallery, near Malvern on 31 August. We were shown how to work both techniques and were soon given the chance to have a go ourselves. Were able to see examples of Jenni's work which helped us decide which technique we wanted to attempt first. The lunch provided by the Blue Ginger Gallery was a lovely home-made soup with freshly baked bread and the course itself took place in the small Summer House which provided a very friendly atmosphere. I enjoyed the day very much and found it very useful."

Jenni's Rag Rugs responded:

" I enjoyed the day too Jackie and I look forward to seeing your finished seat mat photo which I can put on the students' page of my website. Keep on progging!"

"Jenni's courses are such a treat and so inspirational. This course is set in the most beautiful tranquil location and the lunch is amazing. The course is very well taught and provides the perfect balance of teaching, free practice and individual tuition. Jenni is very helpful but not overbearing or bossy! This is my second course with Jenni and I have loved both of them. Thank you"

"Lovely venue at Trumpet Corner and very friendly course run by Jenni. We were a small group and chatted away to new friends whilst learning all about progging and hooking. Lots of opportunities to ask questions as we tried out techniques using different fabrics. Came away with lots of ideas and more confidence to start a project. Jenni is a real expert and it was a privilege to learn from her experience."
