Description Of Work:
Most of all, I appreciated the promptness and courtesy of the pick-up and delivery, as well as the care of the carpets. Mr. Hayko understood the personal value of the carpets, explained to me their provenance, offered alternative options for repair, cleaned them well, and offered a fair price. He spoke with me directly, politely, and took time to answer my questions. I recommend him and Anthony…whom I forgot to tip for his service. My apologies! (I don’t think he expected anything, but it’s always nice anyway!) | |Thank you!

Support my project, Learn How To Weave Rugs!

My goal is to raise $5,000 before Friday, February 20, 2015 11:59pm, and Your donations are eligible for a tax deduction.

I am excited to be sharing a new project I am working on. Your thoughts and feedback are invaluable to me. I am hoping to create an educational, tutorial video covering the fundamentals of vertical rug weaving, including terms such as warp and weft, techniques such as knotting and the basics of design.

I’m sharing this project at an early stage of its development because I hope you might be interested in supporting the work, in any capacity you can. I’m aiming to raise $9,500 by February 20th, 2015 to cover the cost of materials and supplies to create a video highlighting my passion. If you can support this project with a tax-deductible donation, together we can make this idea a reality! I am offering special perks in return for your donation, listed to the right of the project page: http://www.hatchfund.org/project/learn_how_to_weave_rugs

Sharing the project with others and sending me your thoughts are also very helpful ways to show your support.

Please take a moment to view the brief video I created for my project and make a tax-deductible donation here: http://www.hatchfund.org/project/learn_how_to_weave_rugs
