The author gives a thorough, easy to understand look at a lesser known fiber art. The author's skill and passion for the subject is clear and draws readers in. While the book is mostly how-to oriented, it also covers history and craft supply issue, adding depth to the content. The wide range of sample rugs allows readers to see all the possible projects they could tackle. The author's insider tips and experience make this book so much more value than basic how to books or internet instructions. While the book mostly focuses on rugs and flat projects, it also shows how to make three dimensional pieces like stuffed animals. The award-winning DVD is a great help for those now to this art form who like to learn in a way that is both visual and auditory; the DVD captures the quaint feel of this art.
Rug Hooking Magazine (Jan/Feb 2014) writes:
This fun, colorful book-- a follow-up to the author's previous title, Joy of Hooking (With Yarn!)-- presents techniques for hooking with yarn that go beyond the basics; various methods of dyeing yarn, using handspun and natural yarns, getting fine detail and more. Six projects, with full-size patterns and detailed instructions and tips, give readers a chance to try out the techniques they've learned. The book includes a refresher on basic rug hooking techniques, and 11 featured artist sections that look at the work of rug hookers from across Canada (and the U.S.), with even more examples and creative ideas for using yarn in hooked rugs.
