First Base, a special needs workshop in BARBADOS. We now use offcuts donated by the local T shirt factory. As they seem keen to continue rugging, I've today introduced them to my spring hook.
Made by Lindsay Malin The Red Flower rug is 730mm in diameter, hand hooked; the Fruit and Veg rug is 610mm X 830mm, again hand hooked; and the Fly on Oleander is 500mm X 700mm, hand hooked. All are made mainly with cottons. Are there any further details you would like?
