    Without a doubt this is the best all around book on rug hooking I have in my library. And I have many books on my shelf. Tara Darr does a marvelous job instructing new hookers in the craft while not boring people who have hooked rugs for many years. This book contains a wealth of information. If I could only have one rug hooking book this would be it. The pictures are well done and the helpful hints are worth the purchase. Just when I think I finally know pretty much all I need to know about rug hooking along comes Tara Darr to teach me more. If I could give it more than five stars I certainly would.

    This review is from: Wool Rug Hooking (Paperback)

    This book is by far the best of its kind! With wonderful information to get anyone started in rug hooking (from the tools and supplies needed to techniques for dyeing, cutting wool, transferring patterns, hooking options and finishing the pieces), anyone can learn this age-old craft. Author Tara Darr not only shows how to create flat rug pieces, but she also provides instructions for such 3-D pieces as footstools, pillows and a cabinet. Traditional folk art designs, along with a few seasonal options, are easily replicated with the full-size pattern pull-out. With nearly 200 full-color photos and 50 how-to illustrations to accompany detailed step-by-step instructions, you’re sure to become a successful rug hooker!
