Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book about punch hooking, an alternative form of rug hooking. Gloria Crause uses any material she thinks of, there are no No Nos in her method. Anything you can string through the hook is fair game. Her rugs are incredibly beautiful. She offers advice on materials and methods that are priceless.

Best Book for Punch Needle Rug Hooking 11 Nov. 2007
By Lakewood, OH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I believe this is THE book for learning how to use a punch needle to make rugs and one of the few on this subject. (Most books in this genre are on latch hooking or punch needle embroidery, but not punch needle rug hooking.) I built a frame from the instructions in this book and I am not that handy with building things. Gloria Crouse's design - although it does smack of the 60's - and use of materials was and is absolutely groundbreaking relative to the traditional/primitive style and design of rug making. She developed techniques and used materials that had never been used before. Thank you Gloria!

Not what I expected 9 Sept. 2000
By Susan Moulton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is mostly about making wall hangings and is not a good book for the beginner or anyone looking for information about the type of rugs you would put on the floor. I was hoping for some good examples of alternate materials for interesting looks, but this book fell short of that. If you are looking for a fantastic book on this subject look at "The Rug Hook Book" by Thom Boswell, it covers it all from where to get supplies, choosing fabrics (with lots of ideas for adding fun and unusual materials for texture and color), great patterns from traditional to modern. I just can't say enough. If you only buy one book.....this should be the one....it has it all!!!
Excellent 26 Feb. 2013

This book is a must for anyone who is interested in Punch hooking. The author thoroughly covers the ins and outs of this art form from basic punch hooking techniques, to frame building, to design, color and finishing. It's an excellent read and very inspiring. Ms. Crouse knows her stuff and knows how to impart her wisdom in an understandable, easy to learn fashion.
