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.

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.

This book on rug making is fantastic I made a large fireside rug for the very first time at age 78, after following the books instructions and it has turned out super I have had many offers to buy it.

It is on Facebook if anyone wishes to see it.

It is a great hobby you can use any new or old material mine was made of Spandex dress material.

I have recommended it to many.
