Twining

source
Twining is similar yet very different from weaving. The rugs are made on a frame and typically use scraps and recycled materials. The weft is twisted or "twined" around each warp strand.

Two Fiber Guild members (Nancy S. and Laura B.) are twiners. If you are interested in learning more about twining, feel free to contact them - use the Guild email, provided in the top right column.

Nancy has taught several community education classes and shares the directions and tips on her blog Wyoming Breezes - use the "posted topics" list in the right column of her blog to search for "rugs or twining"
