I was reminded this week while talking with a friend that some of the topics that fascinate handspinners also fascinate other fiber artists. This person stitches penny rugs and to make the rugs she buys hand-dyed wool fabrics which are apparently very costly. So she is interested in learning how to dye.
I got to see a penny rug last year at the Knaut-Rhuland House museum in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, a visit I posted about here. You can see the penny rug in the photo. It's on the wall behind the great wheel, to the left.
