One of the founding principles of Coppes Commons was to create a place where visitors could watch handcrafted goods being made right before their eyes. This concept is put into practice at Lera’s Rugs every day. Owner, Lera Rodes, and her daughters can be seen weaving rag rugs, placemats, hot pads, and bags daily on one of several foot-treadle floor looms threaded with dozens of large spools of colorful thread. Lera is always happy to explain and demonstrate her process to customers, and her high-quality products make wonderful heirloom pieces for yourself or as memorable gifts. They make great souvenirs from your travels in and around Nappanee as well!
In addition to seeing loom weaving in action and shopping from Lera’s collection of hand-woven products, she offers a wide variety of dress-making fabrics, sewing notions and yarn! You are sure to be drawn into the craftsmanship on display and inspired by the supplies available for your own creative pursuits. Be sure to visit all of the other Coppes Commons shops online to see more of the artisan goods available on site!
