The amazing braiders of the Valley Forge Rug Braiding Guild
2016 Going Native
The 2016 Rug Challenge was to make a rug reflecting “Going Native.” Some braiders chose to interpret this this topic as jungle-themed, some went for Native American symbols, and some saw it as their own native land reflecting their region of the United States, or the US in general.
But first, we started off with a “native” Hawaiian dance and everyone got a lei to wear.
Marjorie Kauffman made a braided basket with two rows of fur that are separated by a row of 9-loop centers.
