This week I am wanting to work on repairing old rugs and hooking on my second Parker’s Cove rug. I also want to design and put on backing another Parker’s Cove rug.
I ran into trouble repairing the first old rug. The edge was bent back with no whipping on it. As a result, after years of use on the floor, the burlap backing has broken between these pins.
I’m not sure how I’m going to approach repairing it yet. I thought I’d look in this book by Judy Taylor for ideas. It is full of detailed step-by-step repair techniques to use on old rugs. There are a lot of photos showing various steps in repair and before and after photos. Thank-you for such a detailed book, Judy!
The second old rug has been neglected for the first, at the moment. I managed to find some wool yarn in my stash to repair the whipping. That’s a start.
Well, that’s what’s on my plate this week folks! If you have been reading, thanks! Have a great week everyone!
