Day/Time: Wednesday 8:30 a.m.
Teacher: Kelly Morganson

Skill Level:  Beginner
Finished Size:  25" x 37"
Pattern Fee: $12.00

This class will cover the basics of weaving a pioneer rug.  We will show you how to join the strips to warp the loom and begin weaving the rug.  Rugs are a great way to use up leftover binding strips and old fabric that doesn't look quite as pretty now as when you bought it years ago.

Supply List:  

Book "From Rags to Rugs"
Loom (can be pre-ordered for $49)
Lots and lots of 2 1/2" fabric strips (strips can be cut wider for a bulkier rug)

Cutting Instructions:
You will need about (40) 1" strips to create the warp for the rug
Plenty of 2 1/2" strips for weaving
