If you don't have the time or the money to attend a braiding "camp" for rug braiding instructions, my videos provide an excellent alternative to learn how to make a braided rug. Furthermore with video, you can proceed at your own pace and if you don't "get it" the first time around you can replay it until you do. They are designed so that you can braid along with me. I give detailed instructions and take you through every step of the braiding process.

At the end of the video, I expect you will have made a braided rug. Also, once you've mastered the content of these videos you will be able to make any size, style or color of any oval or round braided rug that you desire. For those of you who have had difficulties with other learning methods or if you are just someone who wants to learn a new craft, my two videos; ("How To Braid an Oval Rug" and "How To Braid a Round Rug") are a wonderful opportunity to learn how to braid quality rugs . Each video is over 4 hours in length. The first is a complete guide to making an oval braided rug and the second, a complete guide to making a round braided rug.

Each video is a 2 DVD set, over 4 hours in length, teaching my way of making a braided rug.
