I especially loved seeing this rug in person since I've hooked Barbara Carroll's version of it! It's a great rug!
So beautiful even now. Some of these rugs date back to the 1800's.
Colors still good!
LOVE this rug in person!
Great old rug!
Wool appliqué with lovely color still.
So soft and elegant.
This is stitched and appliquéd.
Top one is appliqué.
Gorgeous color in the bottom rug.
Two versions of the same pattern.
Contemporary rugs done by Tracy Jamar ~ very creative!
Tracy and Jan Whitlock authored this book and were there this evening autographing our copies as we purchased! I've only skimmed thru it but I can tell its a great history of the sewn rug and one we'll use as a reference for a long time to come!
Our first day went fast ~ the rugs are beautiful,if you get a chance to be here this week ~ the vendors have lots for you to buy ~ and I'm thrilled to get a bolt of SPARKLY wool that I'm going to dye for my next show!!!
More to come ~ stay tuned!
P.S. ~ the authors asked me to remind everyone that most of these rugs are covered under the copyright law!!
