Rag Rug Loom Giveaway!


Calling all Rag Ruggers and Rag Rugging Wanna Bees!

John's been busy again!
This time putting together a Mini Rag Rug Loom 
that's the perfect size for weaving a hot pad
or a roomy coaster 
or a small rug for a doll house
or a decorating accent. . . .

I can think of so many uses for these cute little rugs. . . .


The loom is perfect for trying your hand at rag rugging
 before your invest in a larger one. . . .
Perfect for teaching the art of weaving, too. . . .
Or as a gift to a crafty friend!

I love this Mini Rag Rug Loom.
It's so much FUN!


It doesn't take long to make a Mini Rag Rug either.
I can weave one in less than two hours--
and that includes tearing the fabric. 


As a thank you to everyone for following The Country Farm Home
(and I DO Thank each and every one of you),
I'm giving away one of John's Mini Rag Rug Looms! *

The Winner will receive a loom and the instructions for weaving.
 I'll even throw in this Mini Rag Rug, too!


The rules are simple:

Become a Follower of The Country Farm Home
and
Leave a Comment on this post.

That's it! Easy. . . .


I'll reveal the Winner on February 18th--
right after Country Whites Weekend!


Speaking of which,
be sure and mark your calendars to join us next Friday-Sunday,
February 15-17 for the Country Whites Weekend party!
Cindy and I will be up when the rooster crows to open the festivities.
Hope you'll join in!


Hope you'll join the Mini Rag Rug Loom Giveaway, too!
Good Luck to Everyone!

. . .from my farmhouse to yours. . .


*Just a Note: The Mini Rag Rug Loom is not for sale online, yet. John's offering them to local groups and special orders.

Morning Dru,
Please throw my name in the hat!
I would love this loom made by John.
I have tried making a rug once by using a Pinterest tip of cutting slits into cardboard.
It worked, kinda, but it was difficult to work with.
I have never tried on an actually loom, would love to though.
Thanks for the opportunity.
Keeping my fingers crossed. :)
Hugs,
Tam

I am a quilter, knitter, I sew, tat, crochet, I have done stained glass, embroidered, dabbled in the Shabby Chic furniture and have never woven a rug which I would love to do. Makes me think of the wool blanket that I have made by my grandmother for the farm hand back in the early 1900's. I love to make treasures and pass my knowledge on to my younger family members.

Diane said...

I love this idea! This is something I have never done and I think those mini rag rugs are so charming. I've always had an interest in weaving so thanks for this giveaway!

I just love your rugs. I stumbled upon your website a couple of weeks ago. I noticed your rugs. My mother always made crochet rag rugs as I grew up. I still have some of her balls of cloth made for the next rug. I would love to try my hand at one of your rugs. Small would be the way to start. I have added you as a link in my reading corner. Thanks for your great ideas, pictures and inspirations.

Oh my goodness, I would LOVE to enter your loom giveaway! I'd really like to learn to weave properly, on one of JOhn's beautifully crafted looms. The only experience I have had was helping my daughter on her more rustic loom. But we sure had a lot of fun. :-) I love the colors on the rug you've already made, too. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that you pick my number!!! (I'm already a follower.)

Making rag rugs has been on my to-do list for too long! Maybe this little mini loom would get me started!

This loom reminds of the loom used way back when, we would make potholders from loops, circ 1960's?

Ginny Jenkins said...

I think your loom give away contest is over :( Darn.
When I was Amish, they use to weave rugs all the time but for some reason I never learned. I wish I had learned when I had the chance. Cant afford a loom otherwise. Your blog is so enjoyable thank you for keeping the old arts alive. :)
