  1. Hello all. I am a former beginning rug braider who is looking to “get back in the game”. I live in Metrowest, Boston (in between Worcester and Framingham). Does anyone know of classes or a braider who would be willing to give individual classes in my area? Thanks for any help you can give!

  2. Hello – I am a beginner rug braider in Nelson, BC. Are there any other braiders or classes near to me that I can connect with? I am researching everything I can find and washing my fabric tonight for my very first rug. SO excited as I have wanted to do this for years!
