    The patterns and photos in this book are superb! This is one of the best rug hooking books I’ve ever had. The patterns are plentiful and EXCELLENT. I highly recommend this book to primitive rug hookers — and to just anyone who loves folk art. This book is a wonderful treasure to peruse over and over again. It became my favorite book in my rug hooking library the minute I got my hands on it.
