New fabrics, recycled fabrics, men’s ties, new sheets and old sheets whether plaid, plain or patterned all found their way into works of art for floors and walls in Deb Sharpee’s Rag Rug Weaving class, our last class of the 2018 season.
Most people wove at least two rugs or a combination of rugs, runners or place mats. Laughter and conversation within the class provided some of the fuel that kept the weavers weaving, not to mention the few well-placed jokes in Deb’s handout.
According to Deb, the nutshell view of this class is: Design…Arithmetic…Prep…Weave…Finish!
This class has been “the closer” for the past few years and it’s a perfect and cozy way to take us from one year into the next.
The final reveal at the end of class for one student…rolling out two rugs and one runner! One of the stars of the week was this wall hanging made with men’s ties. A sample was brought in for inspiration and Deb knows how to incorporate just about anything into a rag rug (including plastic flowers and sequined prom dresses).
We close the 2018 season with warmth and Sievers hugs (like this one at the end of class) from all of us to all of you!
