TWINED RAG RUGS

Demonstrating Artist

Deeanna Price

Saturday and Sunday – Canopy E

Originally hailing from Wayne County, Deeanna is descended from the Mormon Pioneer families who migrated across the United States. Her grandmother and mother were her tutors in making twined rag rugs. A twining weave pattern is one in which the weft is stationary on a pegged wooden frame while the warp is twist-braided around the weft. Rag rugs are composed of recycled fabric and will last for decades if constructed well. These sturdy rugs can provide a loving reminder of relatives and friends whose old clothing and keepsakes may be used for raw material.
