Finishing Book Giveaway

October 22, 2013

We are excited to offer you a chance to win a copy of our latest Rug Hooking book, Finishing Hooked Rugs! Every rug hooker knows that fine finishing adds an extra degree of finesse to your rugs. Finishing Hooked Rugs walks you step-by-step through the stand-by techniques of whipping and binding, but if you are ready for fancier edges, you can learn to knit and crochet borders, braid borders, hang rugs on stretcher bars, and more. The book also includes chapters on blocking and steaming, cleaning and caring for your rugs, and repairing hooked rugs. This is a dynamite reference you will come back to time and again when finishing your rugs.

Each technique is photographed and demonstrated by experts in the field, including Stephanie Allen-Krauss, Kris McDermet, Christine Manges, Dianne Tobias, Nola Heidbreder, Anne Boissinot, Joyce Krueger, Janet Conner, Susan Feller, Ann French, and Kris Miller. You could not learn finishing from better teachers!
