Clean, tight, unmarked; slight wear to corners and spine extremes; otherwise very minimal wear; Outlines four rag rug techniques: hooking, prodding, braiding, and applique, and provides information on design, preparation, and finishing. A beautiful selection of color photographs illustrate examples of contemporary designs and the influences of 19th century rugmakers, from New England to the Maritime provinces of Canada. The second section is for those interested in taking up rugmaking. Each technique is explained and illustrated in detail, then followed a choice of projects - rugs, cushions, hats, and wall hangings. Rag Rugs demonstrates how an essentially simple craft can transform to folk art and provide the maker, even one with no previous experience of textile crafts, with results in which to take lasting pride.
