Lord Mayor helps out the Hamlet Haberdashers!

Posted on by Website Administrator

Work continued on the rag rugs and Peg Dolly making for Abbeydale this Traditional Crafts and Skills weekend with a little help from the Lord Mayor of Sheffield.

With the lovely rose petal pattern emerging from cut-up old duvet covers as the rug progresses it’s now looking so gorgeous no-one likes the thought of it being walked on!

So the plan is to make a triptych of rugs to hang in the Learning Centre, taking inspiration from the site - one is already representing our flowers so the other two will take their colours from our many trees and from the water-powered steel-making process!

Watch this space!
