Q: Will I be able to make the rugs once I have purchased the pattern or video?

A: What I have found from being in business for almost 15 years, is that if you are a visual learner, I would recommend the oval video tape. If you learn from reading then I would suggest the pattern. I have found a small percentage needs both. I personally believe the tape is the easiest way to learn. After you have learned the basics, then I would purchase the patterns for the different designs. (Think of ways that you have learned other crafts and what you know works best for you.)

Q: Do I need to know how to crochet or knit?

A: No!

Q: Do you think that I can make the rugs?

A: Yes, I have children that make my rugs and send me their ribbons that they have won at the Fair. I have had one five year old who was really interested in making the rugs, make one. She was an exception! I think most 8 year-old children can make the rugs, if they have an interest in rug making.

Q: Many people ask. Can someone who is handicapped make my rugs?

A: Absolutely yes, I have had wonderful results working with the blind and other handicapped people. The method that we use doesn’t require a lot of hard pulling or twisting with your hands or wrists. I find my method to be very relaxing and therapeutic.

Q: Will my rug lay flat?

A: Yes, if you understand the increasing principle in the pattern.

Q: Are the rugs machine washable?

A: Yes, you can machine wash and dry.

Q: What fabric do you use for the best results?

A: Any fabric can be used including plastic grocery bags. However, the best fabric is 100% cotton because it is more absorbent, the fabric tears with less raveling, has more loft and is easier on your hands.

Q: Do I need to have any previous skills or knowledge before I start your method?

A: No, but having dexterity skills is helpful. I have seen ladies that struggle with dexterity overcome by being determined and end up with some very nice rugs.
