I love the idea of making my own rugs. I haven’t done it yet, but I am determined to eventually. In the meanwhile, I keep collecting articles and patterns for rug making.
My favorite technique?
Something easy. So for me, that would be either a crocheted rug or a sewn rug. I can’t wait to get started!

I haven’t collected a lot of information on braided rugs from the internet because I own books on the subject. The books are The Illustrated Guide to Rug Braiding by Vera Cox and The Braided Rug Book by Norma Sturges.

I love to sew and I always have tons of remnants that I am desperate to find a purpose for.
Hooked rugs are my sisters current favorite needlecraft. She makes only large ones and then gives most of them away. I am the current beneficiary. I recently received a 3×3 foot country scene done in wool strips.
