Item details

American Primitive Hooked Rugs, a primer for recreating antique rugs by Barbara Carroll and Emma Lou Lais. Copyright 1999. 101 pages. Out of print.

This book "represents a complete rug hooking workshop in your hands." The book takes you through the basics - what is primitive rug hooking, equipment & tools needed, wool, dyeing, designing, how to hook different motifs and finishing your rug. Spiral binding makes it easily lay flat or fold over while you read.

This was the first rug hooking book I ever purchased and had all the information I need to start my rug hooking journey!

Book is in very good condition, very minimal wear from bookshelf storage and a small tear on front cover below the "E" in Primitive.

Shipping to the US is by USPS Priority Mail.

On the Prairie is a smoke and pet free studio.

Thanks for visiting!
