Product Description

About the Author

My long career as a painter of Narrative Americana Primitives led naturally to rug hooking. My style, my colors, the effect that I achieve in my paintings moved quite fluidly into this new art form. I have been a journalist, a sailing and live aboard articles writer for cruising magazines, a potter, painter, quilter, rug hooker and am presently a cozy mystery writer. We down-sized from an antique sea captain's house on Cape Cod to a forty-four foot boat but I still paint, hook and write mysteries (a busy new career). I hope rug hookers out there will benefit from my experience striving to create "antique" rugs without having to wait a hundred years for the patina of age to set in. Have a great time and email me to tell me about your work.

Not so much 16 Mar. 2012
By S. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have a lot of books related to rug hooking and to be completely honest, I could have done without this one. Priced high for the rather slim volume it is. No real meat to it either. Just rehashes material already published. I would not recommend this to someone wishing to learn or needing instruction on dyeing. There are a number of better sources out there for the same money.

Enjoyed this Kindle book. 9 Jan. 2013
By Becky Jo Paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this ebook. I was inspired by the authors ideas and writing style. I found it the suggestions for dying to be very practical. If you are looking for a technical dye book with tons of recipes this is not for you. It gives ideas, tips and inspiration. Photos were beautiful on my 7" tablet.

Dyeing 20 July 2013
By Ruth F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
OK for the primitive dyer. Not a bad book at all. The 'shading' fiber artists probably won't find anything they don't already know.
