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.
