As you can see, the mug rugs are focused around the seasons and holidays. We do our very best to style the Mug Rug Club in a way that gives you time to make the mug rug before the next holiday. For example, the January Mug Rug Kit is styled to Valentine’s Day which is in February, The March Mug Rug Kit is styled to Easter which is in April, the June Mug Rug Kit is styled to Independence Day which is in July, etc.
