April 23 Craft Exhibition

I have seen quite a few rag a jack mats over the past 40 years, but the detail that Linda Osmond has managed to get in her poked designs are quite different.
How can you price something as priceless as these. The hours it takes to do one is more than a normal work week. If you have one that you paid less than $1000 for than you have a bargain.
These mats are traditional in method and created by Linda Osmond of Shoa Bay, Fogo Island. It involves cutting recycled polo fleece clothing into little strips and poking them through the burlap from the front to create the design.
