Crochet Rag Rug Workshop (9:00 am - 3:00 pm)

Learn the wonderful art of rag rug with Beverly Richards from Rags 2 Rugs.  Rag rugs have been around for centuries and were originally made from torn rags and old clothes.  The art of rag rugs was brought to the shores of North America with immigrants to the new world.  From about 1890 to 1910, rag rugs experienced a period of popularity, influenced by the “Arts and Crafts” movement.  In this hands-on workshop, participants will be making an approximately 30” diameter round rug.  A simple single crochet stitch is used.  No crochet experience is necessary and no sewing is involved.  Recycled mill end cut fabrics for strong, long lasting rugs will be used making your rug machine washable and dryer safe.  The cost is $95 for Woodlawn members/$105 for non-members and includes fabric, a hook and lunch.  Students should bring scissors.  As space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling Woodlawn at 667-8671.

A Moveable Feast Of Insectary Plants – A Master Gardener Volunteer Program (11:00 am - 12:00 - noon)

Woodlawn, in collaboration with The University of Maine Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program, is offering a program on Insectary Plants.  Reeser Manley, gardener, teacher and author, along with Marjorie Peronto, extension educator at UMaine Cooperative Extension will conduct this special program for gardeners.  They will present an array of annuals, biennials and herbaceous perennials that attract pollinators and other beneficial insects.  Grown in containers, these plants can be moved around the garden where needed.  This concept of an insectary will increase insect biodiversity for gardens in tune with nature.  The program is free, however, donations are greatly appreciated.  Please call Woodlawn at 667-8671 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
