Have you ever wanted to weave a rag rug and wondered how to get started? Here is your chance to get the answers to all your rag rug questions. During this talk we will discuss the looms and tools necessary to weave a firm and tightly woven rag rug. Another important factor is the proper warp materials that create the firm foundation that holds your rug together for years of wear. We will also talk about the fabrics and their preparation for weaving. We’ll compare the age old tradition of recycling clothing and sheets to the use of buying new fabric. I will show you how to easily cut or rip the strips for the weft. I will have many examples of rugs and other rag woven items to get you enthusiastic about weaving rag rugs. By the end of the talk you will be ready to go home and weave rag rugs, placemats, mug rugs and other rag textiles.
