Traveling east now - we were in New Orleans and visited the shop of Ronda Rose of the Louisiana Loom Works at 616 Chartres Street. Ronda designs and weaves custom rag rugs for her clients. The maximum available width is ten feet and all of her rugs are machine washable. Beautiful shop amazingly situated in the middle of the French Quarter.
A weaver-friend came into visit Ronda while we were there - turns out Dan had played music with her before - Weaver-fiddler Daron from the By & By String Band!
