Hooked Rugs Today is a wonderful book full of amazing photos for beginner to advanced rug hookers.The Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild sponsors this show that used to be held annually at the Round Barn in Shelburne, Vermont. Some of the best fiber artists in the world feature their art at this show so the works in this book are not just your ordinary hooked rugs.There are several books by Amy Oxford on this same category featuring the same show but not the same rugs. I own every one of them; they are valuable teaching aids for any rug hooking teacher.
I thought I was buying a rug hooking book, with instructions, step by step pictures. But not. After buying Amy Oxford needle I thought her book was the best way to start learning her technic. Instead, the book only have pictures of multiple rugs from an exposition.
Thanks for a great book. Super transaction. ALl as advertised. Highly recommend.
