PDF FILE: Rugmaker’s Bulletin #3: BROOMSTICK RUGS
by Master Rugmaker, Diana Blake Gray, 1996
No longer available in print

Yes, these really were made with a broomstick handle as the main tool, but you can make your own with the directions here using a dowel. The rugs appear woven on one side and knotted on the other. The technique is traditionally done with fabric strip for both the 'warp' and the 'fill' strands, but can be made with yarns, or fabric and yarn in combination. Instructions include how to prepare fabric strips and make your own simple 'broomstick' tool from a dowel. Once you understand the basics of this technique, you can make rugs of any size.

The Rugmaker’s Bulletins were written by Master Rugmaker Diana Blake Gray bowing to popular demand for the basic directions for some of the unique rug making methods. These pamphlets are now out of print but you can download and print your own copy. Each is 8.5 by 5.5 inches and has 8 to 10 pages of directions. In many cases these bulletins are the only printed directions ever published for the technique.

If you would like to learn more about these techniques, you are cordially invited to take the Rag Rugs Tour on the Rugmakers Homestead Website at www.rugmakershomestead.com
