    5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 7 April 2014
    By Barbara Collins Zuiderent - Published on
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    What a wonderful book! He gives such clear, precise information about all aspects of rug making plus an AMAZING collection of beautiful rugs with detailed instructions on creating each one of them. He also shows the fabric he used to make each rug! How cool is that! It is the best book for weaving rag rugs that I have ever seen. He is a great teacher, writer, and rug maker! Every weaver needs a copy of this book.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific, useful, detailed book 9 April 2014
    By Mom and daughter - Published on
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Very thorough, well-illustrated, well-organized and helpful. 50 pages explaining equipment and materials, preparation and weaving, then more than 30 projects for 4-shaft looms, and the designs are gorgeous. (Some could be woven on 2-shaft rug looms.) Covers looms and tools, materials for warp and weft, preparing rags, warping, weaving, and finishing. So glad I got the book (and I have read just about every book there is about rag weaving).

    This book has everything.
    Great, clear photos, wonderful color and appealing designs.
    The drafts are large and readable. The fullpage photos of each rug illustrate the structures very well.
    A beginning how-to section has excellent photos of all pertinent techniques.
    This book will make you want to weave rag rugs and enjoy the process.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Good book 10 April 2014

    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Has good information.
    I'm a beginner with the wrong kind of loom for it's content.
    But it is inspiring.
    I may have to get a more complex loom now! :-)

    5.0 out of 5 stars I loved and drooled over this book 1 May 2014
    By Tirzah - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I initially bought this book because a rug made by my friend is on the cover. But when I actually read it, I drooled over everything rug in the book. I want to learn how to weave, and have signed up for a weaving class later this year....but this book explained a lot of basics about weaving--enough to whet my appetite more, and also showed me lots of things that I can do in the future. But most of all this book was just a pleasure and joy to read to see the gorgeous art, practical art that can be created by recycling old fabric into beautiful rugs. What a pleasure this book is.
