Rug Maker?

Submitted by Joanna on 10/23/01. ( )

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone knows if BJ's Rugmaking is still in business? She was located in High Ridge, MO. I have a couple of bear and an alligator to have done. If she's gone, does anyone know someone else that is good? Any help would be great. Thanks, Joanna

Just got 3 bears back from BJs the rugging was nice but they didnt stretch them much if any. I too am looking for a new rugger.

would THEY stretch them? I mount my heads AND stretch my rugs BEFORE sending them. I would not expect the rugger to do it.

Almost forgot.

BJ's does a GREAT job. NP has had good reviews, but I never used them.
