Here’s a photo taken by my sister, Karen.
Here’s Gail Martin and her granddaughter demonstrating the making of wagon wheel rugs.
Here’s Karen’s description: “Eureka Days, 1996 – Mom demonstrating how she & Dad (Clyde) made wagon wheel rugs at the museum during Eureka Days in 1996. That’s 6-year old Chhaya Ruth K. with her–we were back in Kansas for a short visit from our home in India. Greenwood County Museum.
