I haven't woven rag rugs in 30 years. And I didn't do it well then. I scored a rag cutter on E-bay this fall and decided with the addition of a free counter balance loom with cast iron parts that I finally had a loom that would handle the beating that good rags rugs require . Right now I am trying several types of materials . I sell my work at the Local Farmers' Market and hope to do well this these this summer.
