HASH(0xa2774f48) out of 5 stars The best of its kind. 9 Jan. 1999
By Willard J. Bonchin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
The Rag Rug Handbook is a must for any rug weaver. Beginner rug weavers and experienced will find this book useful and interesting. The listing of looms in the back gives a short history of each loom and the illustrations are most useful for identification or assembly (if your loom happens to be in pieces). Pictured in color are beautiful rugs using different weaving techniques with very complete instructions. Having trouble with your rugs - this is the book that will give you answers. Donna

HASH(0xa2774f9c) out of 5 stars Rag Rug Handbook: Revised Edition by Janet Meany et al 6 July 2004
By Jeanne Reeves-Lau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is an ABSOLUTE MUST for a rag rug weaver. It is the best book I've found yet that describes not only the art of weaving rag rugs but also tries to give an historical account of looms that were made. I used this book as a reference when I bought an used loom. Since the labeling was missing on the loom, the previous owner could not identify what kind of loom she was selling. I was able to not only identify the loom, but I knew from this book that the type of loom I bought was appropriate for rag rug weaving. If you want to learn rag rug weaving, this is the book to get!

HASH(0xa27783f0) out of 5 stars The One Book A Weaver Should Own 12 April 2002
By Tina Parrish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am definitely a novice weaver. This book spells everything out very clearly, from A to Z. Plus, short history of many of the manufacturers. The patterns included will take you from simple to challenging. I have other weaving books, but this one is the one I refer to the most. If you only buy one rag rug handbook, I recommend Janet Meany and Paula Pfaff's book.

HASH(0xa27788c4) out of 5 stars Excellent book for beginners 28 Nov. 2006
By L. Willis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was great for us as beginner weavers. A loom was given to us - all in pieces. By remembering his grandmother's loom and with the pictures in this book, my husband assembled the loom and is now weaving his second rug. This book has lots of information and pictures and is an excellent guide for us "beginner weavers".
