Weaver Bonnie Montgomery (MFA ’81) reached a milestone in May—she completed her 900th rug. It took 32 years to get to number 900, which required 30 yards of fabric and 37 hours of labor. Montgomery’s rugs and additional items like placemats and bags are produced at her studio in Watkinsville, where she listens to audiobooks while weaving at one of her three looms. Her products are sold in Athens, Watkinsville, Valdosta, Macon, Greensboro, Clarkesville and Sautee Nacoochee. For more information, visit http://www.bonniemontgomery.com.
