Amish Knot Rug Hooking
May 14 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM$65.00
How about learning something new and making some décor for your home at the same time?
Central to their beliefs is the desire to live simple, wholesome lives. The Amish rarely waste anything, and recycling is an integral part of daily life. When clothes can no longer be worn or passed down, the Amish will cut them into strips to make quilts or rag rugs. Knot rugs, as well as braided rugs, are well established crafts within the Amish communities. You might hear knot rugs referred to as ‘toothbrush rugs‘. This is because some people fashion toothbrushes to be used as needles to help with the process of making a knot rug.
