Love to Make

September 2015

It's ideal for a beginner but, if you have been hooking for years, it makes a great reference guide too. Divided into two parts, the first section teaches you everything you need to know to get started with instructions that are clear and easy to follow. Part two features eight projects each introducing you to a new technique. We think this books is one of the most comprehensive rug hooking books we have seen and a great addition to a craft library
