About

Add Flare to your Floor!

Each rug I design is a tribute to the uniquely American Folk Art of rug braiding. One-of-a-kind, each piece is handmade, taking time and technique to ensure a quality rug.

There is a great sense of pride in creating with one's hands, making something that will be admired and appreciated. It's exciting to watch a piece grow and change and turn into something beautiful.

I started braiding rugs 35 years ago when My mother-in-law introduced me to the craft. Mom shared her unending (and I do mean unending!) supply of wool with me and I learned how to make magic with myriad of fabric. I expanded my wool sources to the few woolen mills left in New England or from other braiders with a collection of color and history.

Today I continue to love being lost in a sea of wool, putting together the pieces to braid beautiful rugs and baskets.
