TURN YOUR RAGS TO RICHES WITH BRAIDED RUGS!

If you're looking for a simple, inexpensive, family-oriented craft, braiding rugs is the answer!  Braided rugs are much like family quilts - each strip of cloth comes from a cast-off garment and tells a story all its own.  Piecing the rug together is an act of weaving family memories and events into an heirloom of handiwork and practicality.  This time-honored craft is an ideal hobby for all ages and makes a wonderful family project that can be completed in a day or as time allows.

                Author Nancy Bubel grew up admiring the braided rugs created with loving care by her grandmother.  Her grandmother taught her the braiding technique, and she in turn offers these step-by-step instructions to readers far and wide.  In addition, readers will find tips and advice on choosing fabrics, dyeing cloth, selecting a color scheme, and braiding in a variety of designs and shapes.

Synopsis:

Braided rugs are like family quilts - each strip of cloth comes from a cast-off garment and tells a story all its own.
