|This is the most amazing weaving book!|
This time we are looking at a craft that I have no clue how to do but desperately would like to learn. When the publisher mentioned rag rug weaving, I instantly became nostalgic for my grandma's kitchen. She used to have these amazing rag rugs that I adored. Full of bright colors and whimsy - this was definitely something I wanted to learn how to do.
"Weaving Rag Rugs" by Tom Knisely is a fabulous book for the complete novice, like myself, or the veteran weaver alike. He speaks to you not in crafter's jargon that can be overwhelming for a new soul just dipping their toe into the water but in a friendly and easy to follow sort of way. It's almost as if he's right there by your side, patiently guiding you through the ways of weaving.
|Well laid out and so easy to follow instructions.|
With fabulous 'how to' tutorial pictures to gorgeous finished rug glamor shots, this book is the perfect tool for anyone who would like to learn or expand on their weaving knowledge. Charted diagrams, easy to follow instructions, and beautiful photographs make this book sing. The front of the book gives you the building blocks to be able to tackle the 32 patterns located immediately afterwards, and they range from beginner to well advanced motifs. Take a look at some of my favorites...
