Cee Rafuse is a rugmaker who specializes in making reproduction penny rugs in the traditional “make-do” ways of rugmakers of a century ago. Her only tools are a scissors and a needle. She hand cuts and stitches each rug using vintage or antique woolens and cottons that she salvages from well-worn quilts, blankets, and vintage clothing—recycling old materials just as the frugal homemaker did in days gone by. In addition, Rafuse dyes her fabrics by hand using a personal method that yields the look and feel of primitive antique rugs.
