Hit and Miss Thrum Rug, woven from wool, by Nancy Hinsey, Baja, Mexico.

       The Weaver's Friend was founded and published by Janet Meany, editor, from 1989-2015. Janet is now the Associate Editor and the newsletter is continuing as The Weaver's Friend 2, published by Carol Ann Kapheim.

       The newsletter is intended to be a news source for the rag rug community by containing letters and pictures from subscribers. Educational information through projects, interviews with weavers and profiles of suppliers and old loom manufacturers. 

       The objective of the newsletter is to serve the interests and concerns of rag rug weavers and promote a consciousness of the history of rag rug weaving, as well as exploring contemporary applications of the craft. 

The Weaver's Friend 2 is published twice a year.
