Rag Rugs are Back in Santa Fe The Art Through The Loom Weavers Guild, Inc (ATTL) presents the “Rag Rugs & Fiber Arts Show” and sale from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday, August 10 and 11, 2019 at the Montezuma Lodge, 431 Paseo de Peralta in Santa Fe. Free parking is available and there is no charge for admission. Thrifty hooked, braided, knotted, crocheted, knitted, or woven rag rugs have a colorful history all over the world. Most information and examples date to 19th and 20th century weavings that upcycled old clothes and other fabrics into sturdy home accessories. But archaeological research has recovered fabric woven for new clothes using rag strips from worn-out cotton clothing that dates to the 12th century in Arizona. Now, rag rugs are a recognized art form sold in galleries and featured in upscale homes by trendy interior designers. The Art Through The Loom Weavers Guild’s “Rag Rugs & Fiber Arts” will showcase New Mexico rug weavers and fiber artists. The artists will be present on Saturday or Sunday to discuss their creations in person. Some will also be demonstrating their skills at weaving, spinning yarn, or designing one of the many variations of rag-rug construction. The Art Through The Loom Weavers Guild, Inc is a New Mexico 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded more than 35 years ago in the Northern Rio Grande Valley with the idea of training youth to work with traditional Chimayó weavers. Now promoting weaving, hand-spinning and dyeing, the Guild also focuses on techniques that use handwoven, handspun, or hand-dyed materials, including knit and crochet items, dolls, and Northern New Mexico colcha embroidery.
