5.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to a very 'green' craft 18 July 2010
By Mrs. F. Huxley VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is easy to read with very good illustration of the main ways of using 'rags' to make rugs using a variety of tools. I've bought several different books but non have covered the different techniques as well. There are several projects in the book used to practice the different methods and there is also a brief history of rag rug making from the British prespective as well. At the back of the book there is listed supplier's of the tools required - not that many are required to start making your own rugs.

Simple but effective, this book covers the basics of several techniques of rag rugging from sources of inspiration through to finishing off and even recommendations for how to keep them clean. The diagrams are clear and easy to follow, and there are many photos of completed rugs for inspiration.
