Christine Manges

Christine Manges has been mad about rug braiding since she went to her first braid conference in 2006. She has since co-authored a book: Combining Rug Hooking and Braiding (Schiffer Publishing, 2011), and co-written and illustrated two chapters in Finishing Hooked Rugs (Editor: Rug Hooking Magazine, 2013). She has taught both at rug hooking conferences (ATHA, San Antonio, 2015), and rug braiding conferences (New England Braids, 2010-2015) and runs the teaching program at the yearly Valley Forge Guild conference (2010 – 2016). She publishes a quarterly internet newsletter on rug braiding (The Revolutionary Rug Braider) and chats about her braiding life in a blog (TheBraiding Post.wordpress.com). She recently curated an exhibit of braided art rugs that traveled to 3 states.

She lives with her family (and an amazing wool stash) in Pittsburgh.
