History of Rag Art Studios
Rag Art was started by Ann Davies who pioneered a rag rug revival in the 1970s and has written 4 excellent books on rag rug making. She was joined by Mary Dayton and they started selling rag rug making equipment by mail order. They found craftsmen to make the tools and researched materials and techniques, teaching and demonstrating the craft for many years. Mary put Rag Art online as www. ragartstudios.com and Sue was one of her customers. Sue took over when Mary retired in 2011. Now Sue works with her daughter Ruby and they are carrying on Rag Art's long tradition of promoting the art and craft of rag rug making.
