Beautiful Ragwork 23 July 2004
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Where as I wouldn't say this is a beginners book, it does cover the basics. I think this is a great book for someone who is interested in seeing what else is possible with this medium.

Disappointed 4 Nov 2008
By LaDawna Booze - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I found this book to be a real disappointment. The cover is the best 'design' feature of the book.
rugs are fun 17 Feb 2014
By Sherry C. Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
good book, good instructions, easy to read...I made a rug all ready. Every one thinks it was hard, with this book it is easy.
This book is exactly what I was looking for. 8 Oct 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was more than i expected but exactly what i wanted. It shows how to use everyday materials....like cotten, tshirt jersey etc and how to recycle them into pleasing projects without added expense of speciality tools and frames to do them with.
second review is correct, 4 April 2012

the book has little for inspiration, and some chapters have items that are really dated and silly looking ( ex: accessories )
BUT, the rug ideas are solid ( there are five ) you can see the possibilities in them, and the directions are clear and easy to follow. there is no information here, though, that you cant find online.
