Mug Rugs

I belong to an organization that gives scholarships to women going into education.  Each year one group is the host for a luncheon.  This year is our turn.  I suggested that we could do a weaving theme and call it "Weaving Excellence with ADK".  So we are putting baskets on the table and weaving Swedish hearts with candy for favors.  I volunteered to make mug rugs for everyone.  So far I have about 50 finished.  They are made with rug warp.  For some of them I warped for 3 mug rugs and ran the shuttle across all three, then I cut them apart to have fringe around all four sides.  Then I zig-zagged around the edges.  I don't know how many more I will have to make but it is a good thing that the luncheon isn't until October.


  1. Mug rugs are great gifts! Our group wove them as items for the gift bags for the Southeast Fiber Forum last spring, and they were a big hit!!! Keep up the good work.

  2. I wish that I lived close to a weaving guild, the closest one is about 2 hours away.
