Sandy Luckury

Sandy Luckury has been braiding rugs since 1985. She began braiding rugs for her home and soon discovered that it was more than just a hobby. After retiring from banking, she began to pursue her dream of starting a business.

Sandy apprenticed with master braider Barbara Fisher who developed the braiding methods she uses. The precision of this method takes all the guesswork out of braiding. Each row of the rug is counted, then butted, and attached to the rug as a complete ring. Using this method allows rugs to be made in unusual shapes, such as rectangles, hexagons and octagons. Sandy enjoys working with the color and design of a rug to customize each piece for a client’s needs.

Sandy became a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen in the spring of 2004, and in 2007 was awarded Best in Fiber for a rectangle rug displayed in Living With Crafts at the annual Craftsman’s Fair. She is a Certified Instructor of the Braiding with Barbara rug braiding methods and teaches rug braiding at the Dorr Mill Store in Guild, NH. Sandy lives in Bradford, NH and can be reached at
