This book covers all aspects of rag rug making, from examples of traditional rugs to patterns for contemporary projects. As well as providing the novice with basic information on various rag rug techniques, including hooking, prodding, and plaiting, there are also inspirational ideas for those who are already "hooked" on the subject!

5.0 out of 5 stars JUJU VAIL'S RAG RUGS 29 Aug. 2005
By KAREN M. MANASCO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you are intimidated by the seemingly tedious rug work of

others, I encourage you to gander this one! You'll soon see

it is an art of the creative mind. If you can imagine it, you

can hook, prod or poke a gorgeous rug as well.

I truly enjoyed this book for many reasons, mainly for

the gorgeous and very colorful rugs featured within.

After perusing this book you will no longer need a push

to start your own.

This book features uniquely creative projects, a rare treat

in this modern day time of copycat images. Plenty of inspiration here, folks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful 24 Jun. 2001
By Jan Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rap Rugs 29 April 2000
By Jan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a great book. I have been doing hooked rugs but this book gives a lot of new and contemporary ideas. She combines hooked and braided techniques to make beautiful rugs. She also interduces the prodded and appliqued rug technique with complete directions for all these rugs from start to finish. She includes all the patterns in the last section. I am thrilled with this book. I had checked it out of my public library. It is so good I had to buy it.
