This edition was definitely used but the book is a wonderfully creative take on rug hooking. I love the projects and the permission to experiment.

well worth the wait ... can't wait to get started on some projects I had planned & others inspired by the book

If you are intimidated by the seemingly tedious rug work of

others, I encourage you to gander this one! You'll soon see

it is an art of the creative mind. If you can imagine it, you

can hook, prod or poke a gorgeous rug as well.

I truly enjoyed this book for many reasons, mainly for

the gorgeous and very colorful rugs featured within.

After perusing this book you will no longer need a push

to start your own.

This book features uniquely creative projects, a rare treat

in this modern day time of copycat images. Plenty of inspiration here, folks!

Juju Vail has great artistic flair & there are many innovative designs here, all in full colour with templates for some (which happened to be my least favourite designs!). Biggest bugbear - every design is followed by the same, identical instructions on how to back & finish your rug. Once would have been enough, & left more room for the designs & photos. But the "how to's" of rag rugs are all here - easy to follow instructions for cutting the rags, hooking, braiding, prodding, even felting. A great springboard for creativity - pity about all the duplication!

Well written with clear instructions. The illustrations are detailed. The author covers different types of hooked rugs from wallhangings to braided rugs. She offers a variety of patterns from simple to more complex. Overall, I found it to be a great book to begin this new hobbie.

This is a great book. I have been doing hooked rugs but this book gives a lot of new and contemporary ideas. She combines hooked and braided techniques to make beautiful rugs. She also interduces the prodded and appliqued rug technique with complete directions for all these rugs from start to finish. She includes all the patterns in the last section. I am thrilled with this book. I had checked it out of my public library. It is so good I had to buy it.

These are NOT the rugs you have thoughtlessly wiped your feet on at Aunt Bertha's house. WOW! This book has rugs that have left the floor and have risen to an art form. They are gorgeous! The delectible photos and clear directions make you want to rip up rags and get started immediately.
