... and rug-making supplies
Are these rugs machine washable?
Yes, just pop them in the washer and dryer - they come out great!
Are there any exceptions to this?
Yes, the wool rugs must be washed in cold water and not put in the dryer as the
heat would shrink the wool.
What are they made out of?
Most of them are constructed from cotton fabric or cotton blends.
Do your rugs have a lot of little strings showing?
No, I try to fold all raw edges to the inside. If there are a few strings, feel free to pull
them off - it won't hurt anything.
What about the tail of the fabric?
I finish all my rugs off with either hot glue or tacking. I've not had any complaints
of the tail popping out.
Are these rugs durable?
They are very durable. They will last many, many years...probably more than you
would like them to.
Why are they called Rag Rugs?
Because in days gone by, our ancestors made them with rags - scraps of fabric such
as from a worn out dress, etc. Mine are made with new material.
What makes you want to do a good job on these rugs? If you wouldn't
worry about that, couldn't you make them faster and sell them cheaper?
These rugs are high quality. Yes, I could do them cheaper but a job worth doing, is worth doing right.
But more importantly, God says in Col. 3:23&24 "and whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord,
and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye
serve the Lord Christ." and that is the most important reason to do a good job ... to glorify Him.
Are these appropriate for gift-giving?
Yes, yes, yes! I have given many of them for wedding and bridal shower gifts, birthdays,
house-warmings, etc. Every time, they are awed by such a pretty but practical gift.
I've never given one that hasn't been well received.
