Working from my studio in the woods where I can relax and be inspired by the landscape outside my window I make rugs from new materials that will hold the test of time, just like the ones our grandmothers made.
Carefully choosing patterns and colours that will work well together, my rugs are not only cozy under your feet, but look beautiful. Times have changed and women no longer have to scrub carpets by hand or beat them clean, and so while some of my rugs may be dark and traditional, others are bright and vibrant and easily cared for.
Rugs are made with a blend of polyester and cotton fabrics. Machine washable in cold water using colour safe laundry soap, please add 1/3 cup of salt to the first washing to help retain their natural vibrancy and set the colours. Can be put in the dryer on a cool setting, or laid flat to dry.
Workshops to learn how to crochet these rugs are possible for groups of 4 - 6 people within 1.5 hours of the Ottawa area.
Kits with insturctions are available for purchase through Burchell Pines Studio and are packaged to suit your personal taste.
There is always a nice selection of oval and round rugs available here at Wiltse Creek Studio, but if you don't find one to suit your style, she is more than happy to work with you to create one.
