Great Newsletter!

Dianne blogging: The latest edition of the Valley Forge Rug Braiding Guild’s newsletter, The Revolutionary Rug Braider came out yesterday and once again I am overwhelmed with the amount of informative, instructive, and interesting content that is included! My co-blogger Christine Manges is the editor and single-handedly puts this amazing newsletter out quarterly for $15/year. Each issue is 25-30 pages and includes color photos and diagrams. Just outstanding!  I know Christine would not plug it, so I am!
Not only does it include basic and more advanced instruction (this and last issue on continuous and butted square rugs complete with Christine’s wonderful diagrams) but also instruction on making baskets with silk ties, using a curved needle/hemostat to alleviate hand pain, methods to hang large rugs for display AND news and pictures from the Valley Forge Guild members’ meetings, field trips AND interviews AND a calendar of classes around the US AND web sites of braiders AND pictures to inspire us….whew, those of us who know her get to listen to some of the minor whining during the newsletter writing and the occasional computer crash and sometimes are cajoled into writing short pieces…
If you want to download a sample of a newsletter, go to the Valley Forge site: and click on newsletters. I know you will be impressed. Look forward to comments!

  1. I just finished downloading it. I can’t wait for more ink to print it. Yes, I like paper copies.

  2. The newsletter is great! I like it so much I purchased all of the back issues.
    I love the idea of the basket made with men’s ties… what a great way to remember a loved one.
