Colourful 24 Jun 2001
By Jan Lewis - Published on
Juju Vail has great artistic flair & there are many innovative designs here, all in full colour with templates for some (which happened to be my least favourite designs!). Biggest bugbear - every design is followed by the same, identical instructions on how to back & finish your rug. Once would have been enough, & left more room for the designs & photos. But the "how to's" of rag rugs are all here - easy to follow instructions for cutting the rags, hooking, braiding, prodding, even felting. A great springboard for creativity - pity about all the duplication!

Great book for beginners 11 May 2000
By Carole Y. Meier - Published on
Well written with clear instructions. The illustrations are detailed. The author covers different types of hooked rugs from wallhangings to braided rugs. She offers a variety of patterns from simple to more complex. Overall, I found it to be a great book to begin this new hobbie.
