"Proggy and Hooky Rugs" by Miriam Miller

This book is an introduction to the old skills of rag rug making, particularly proggy and hooky rugs. It is a fun book, with instructions for rugs making, pictures of some of the different kinds of rugs you can make, and lots of colour. There is also a scone recipe and a knitted rug pattern, as well as ideas for quirky projects (such as a tea-cosy and a hat) that you can make using the rag rug method.
I hope it encourages you to try rug making and brings to you the pleasure of creating something interesting and beautiful from unwanted fabric.
Miriam Miller is a founding member of the Australian Rugmakers Guild, was President from 2008 until 2012 and now President Emeritus.
