Book Description

Nov. 5 2004
Showcasing the talent of some of the finest living artists in the field, this armchair exhibit features over 625 outstanding color photographs of hooked rugs. A multitude of subjects are portrayed: the love of family, country, home, children, pets, flowers, history, wildlife, hobbies, and holidays, to name but a few. There are animals, both real and make-believe, rugs that tell a story, and rugs that make you laugh. They run the gamut: classic forms to abstracts, traditional to contemporary, rugs for the floor and rugs for the wall. Some deal with difficult issues, like war, terrorism, death, and grief. Others rejoice in capturing the moments that make life sweet: bringing a newborn baby home from the hospital, dancing the tango, celebrating a wedding, and playing the cello. There are many surprises, including a dog wearing a party hat, a whale spouting a bouquet of flowers, and a sheep knitting her own sweater. This wonderful book is a celebration of the love of rug hooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Photos Nov. 29 2010

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.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not my learning book Jan. 12 2014

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.
