By Jan Whitlock & Tracy Jamar
Not since the 1970s exhibit at The Museum of Folk Art has there been such a comprehensive study of sewn rugs. Following the lead of needlework scholars, Whitlock has documented dozens of schools that taught rug making - from Maine to Tennessee. These visual masterpieces are shown in great detail, with more that twenty newly discovered works published here for the first time.
