Announcement   CREATIVITY CONNECTION is a meeting place for ideas, materials and people.

RUGS WITH A NEW PURPOSE: Fabrics from other forms are washed, dried and cut into strips and stripes to become the weaving material for handsome, functional rugs for your home. The rugs are hemmed with two-plies of heavy cotton thread in coordinating colors. The hems, which are woven three inches wide, are then stitched on their edges three times. Then they are tri-folded and secured by hand with stitches of strong cotton thread to form a strong, one-inch wide hem to securely and attractively finish your rug.

SHUTTLES: Hand shaped and sanded, the shuttles bear various scenes. Sometimes wild flowers, veggies or sheep in pasture are featured. Items continue on both sides and sometimes wrap around the contours of the shuttle. Pictures are hand drawn and wood burnt into the surface . Some are colored and some are lovely in their natural wood tone. All are signed by the maker. Special attention is given to the design of the yarn opening to aid its smooth glide though the warp yarns of your loom.

LOOPER RUGS: These plush and absorbent rugs are formed with cotton loops which have been lovingly linked together in chains to form a textured weft (filler material). The hems are woven of a two ply cotton yarn, edge stitched three times and tri-folded to create a thick, approximately one-inch wide hem. Stitching these hems in place is done by hand using a heavy cotton to ensure durability. These rugs are best washed in medium temperature water and spun out twice to remove any water absorbed in the rinse cycle. Line or rack drying is suggested.

IN-JEAN-YES! HANDBAGS: These handy little tote bags are formed from re-purposed blue jean material. Welt seaming creates the adjustable double straps. Actual jean pockets are installed outside and sometimes inside the bag. Bags are lined with coordinating fabric whose color is repeated in the tasseled zipper pull. Some bags feature hand embroidery as embellishment.

SADDLE BLANKETS: Wool warp and weft are the mainstays of these saddle blankets. Wool from Australia is a cooling and absorbent medium for your horse's comfort. Colors and designs may be negotiated to match your show ensemble.

Nice but the wood burning is rough and might catch the fiber. Am going to try to clear coat it enough to smooth it out.
