Penny Rugs: Wool on Wool Applique

Details: In the early 1800s, thrifty homemakers would recycle worn textiles into folk art designs to create decorative bedcoverings, table mats and mantelpieces to adorn their home. Most designs were made of layers of circles of wool traced from coins, hence the penny rug. Other pieces used images of fruits, flowers, houses, and animals that were drawn to create a colorful canvas to brighten their home. With this wool on wool process, we will use a blanket stitch and other decorative stitches to embellish our unique piece.

Price: $105 museum members; $130 nonmembers, + $20 materials fee
