Unfortunately there is a bit of shadow on this photo, but the rug is so lovely I included it anyway. There was no actual discoloration on the rug itself.

9 - Note Cards for MAFA
Carolyn Moore has been coordinating a guild effort to make cards for the MAFA conference goody bags. They are lovely!
These cards are made using scraps of handwoven material. Each MAFA conference attendee gets a goody bag, with items provided by the various member guilds. These will be our contribution for the 2017 conference.
