Online Loom Sales Closing


Hi, Rag Ruggers!

After six years of a very successful business, John has decided to close the ONLINE loom sales. . .Our customers have been GREAT. . .and our sales also. . .but he wishes to have more time for family and to pursue other interests. . .and I totally agree. . .He's worked hard and deserves it. . .

This doesn't mean we're totally quitting. . . We'll be going on the road with them at various times throughout the year. . .and if you are a store owner and wish to order in quantity, we will still be open for that. . .Just email us and we'll see what we can do. . .
I'll also leave this website up for possible future sales of other items. . .to be announced at a later date. . .I'll also be adding photos of the rugs others have made. . .and some of our own. . .for inspiration. . .as well as I'll be sharing some folk crafts along the way. . .We're not going away forever. . .There's still more to come. . .
So. . .the LAST DATE you will be able to order any of the looms will be SATURDAY APRIL 21, 2018. . .and the last shipment will be on the following Monday. . .


THE COUNTRY FARM HOME, DUNCAN FARMSTEAD, and DELL, ARKANSAS HISTORY won't be affected. . .I'll be up and running with those for sure. . .
Thanks to all of you who have made JOHN'S RAG RUG LOOMS a success. . .and Who knows?. . We may see you on the road one day. . .
