Learn the art of making a rag rug

If you know how to crochet, Leone Noddin, a well known rug maker, can help you discover the art of rag rug making.

She will be teaching an eight week class on Mondays from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Shirley Senior Center. It will run from Feb. 4 through March 25. It's a great way to spend a winter's morning- friends, hot coffee and learning a new craft.
