Description

PDF FILE: Rugmakers Bulletin #13: "KITCHEN TABLE" RUGS
by Master Rugmaker, Diana Blake Gray, 1999
No longer available in print form

These are the absolute simplest of woven rag rugs to make, since not even a frame is needed-- just a flat surface to work on which is why they were called "kitchen table" rugs. Almost any fabric can be used from light cottons to heavy denim or wool and they go together very quickly.These make a wonderful family project. The bulletin covers each step from fabric preparation, to weaving and finishing your rug.

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.

Reading these Crafts on PDF is great... Thanks for selling information to these rare, nearly forgotten, lost crafts. To me, it’s like finding buried treasures.
