Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first book to treat wooden frames as a unique tool for creating an amazing variety of rag rugs. Over forty techniques, most for the first time in print. Nearly 300 black and white photographs and drawings.

Synopsis:

This second volume of the Rugmakers Handbook series is designed to teach textile explorers of all skill levels to make practical, durable rugs on simple frames using very basic tools. If you have ever wished for a loom to weave rugs, this book will help cure your loom envy with over forty techniques to create rugs with patterns and textures that just cant be reproduced on a loom. Various types of frames are explained including: high-low, flat, pegged, fifth stick, pinned and scroll frames. Unique warping methods allow the creation of rugs with four finished sides, even in freeform shapes. The book is divided into tensioning and non-tensioning methods and techniques worked horizontally and vertically on the warp strands. Learn such oddities as the twisted warp techniques, spider web warp and the cheaters warp. This is not a craft book, but rather a reference book and includes over forty techniques, most of which have never before been published.
