Writers Digest Awards writes: The book might be a revelation to many readers, especially women. Rug hooking is a absorbing hobby women in particular can undertake. Eminently practical in its treatment of the subject, the well organized and written how-to book explains what rug hooking is, its traditions and background, how to do it, and then projects beginners can try to do. Step-by-step instructions, with handy pictures, look like they would enable readers to achieve considerable successes. Needed equipment is listed. Using yarn to hook poems, sayings, and aphorisms into rugs is another feature extolled. The gallery of rug hookings is colorful and impressive. A valuable 28-minute beginners' guide DVD is incorporated inside the book. Overall, the book is a fine introduction to rug hooking that should hook readers into trying out this avocation. --Writers Digest Awards Self Publishing Awards, 2011
Writer's Digest Awards writes: 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; most of the samples have a slightly old-fashioned feel, but readers could easily adapt the skills to more cutting edge fashion patterns. 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 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. The included pattern is a great gift to beginners as well. --Writer's Digest Self-Publishing Awards, 2011
