Deb Sharpee’s interest in weaving was first sparked as a small child, watching her grandmother weave rag rugs. Miles of warp later, Deb has much to share with her students. Her work has been published in Weavers, Complex Weavers Journal, Crafts Report and Handwoven magazines, and the books Weaving Contemporary Rag Rugs and the latest edition of the Rag Rug Handbook.
