I teach rag rug making & met Susan Feller at a conference a few years ago. Many of my students have no idea where to start when designing their own rug so when I received this book as a present I was delighted. It breaks down the minefield that can baffle a beginner (& a more expereinced rug artist) into a sequence of simple steps & exercises that gently lead the student to explore their own way of working. It is profusely illustrated with examples & photographs of rugs from all over the world that show one or more aspects of the process. This is not a 'project' book although there is a full size pull-out pattern inclided. For anyone interested in textile design this book will be invaluable.
