You are invited to participate in our "Beginning Rug Weaving Class".  This three hour course will cover the basics of rug weaving.  Participants will make their own rug to take home. Among the techniques you will learn are:  preparation of materials for weaving, rug weaving and rug finishing.   

Address is listed below with class time and link to google maps. Class is in the small village of Vernon which is east of Keosauqua on Route J40 and across the river from Bentonsport. Leave extra time to find Vernon if you have never been there before.

(Afternoon class time is available. Must be arranged in advance.) 

Materials: Students must bring their own materials to weave. Example: 2 bedsheets or 6-8 pairs of blue jeans

Notes: Four different looms are available in the studio where the instructor and her assistants weave by hand.  They make rugs in various sizes and colors.  Placemats, mug rugs, and table runners are also turned out by their flying fingers.  This large assortment is available at the Iron & Lace shop.  Food is available in Keosauqua and Bonaparte, or bring a bag lunch.
