Big Momma

Featured in: Celebration XX

"This rug is an adaptation of a nearly 14’ long runner made by my friends, Marny Cardin (the designer) and Kate Smith (the rug hooker). When I saw the original, the first thing I said was 'That’s one big momma of a rug!' Marny gave me the design, and I have made my own adaptations and additions in order to make versions of it in various sizes for floors, tables, and pillows. I particularly like this rug because of its association with my good friends Marny and Kate."
- Gene Shepherd, Celebration Hall of Fame 2018
