The Rag Rugs Tour

Moderated by Diana Blake Gray
Master Rugmaker

Welcome to our exclusive Rag Rugs Tour. Through the 30 stops you’ll get acquainted with over a hundred different methods that were used to create traditional rag rugs. You can settle back and cruise through all of the stops or just jump to the sections that interest you most by using the navigation bar on the left side of each page.
