Book Excerpt: Designed By You - Start with Color

Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways.

By: Tamara Pavich

Designed By You is available at or on Amazon.

Let me introduce you to a fabulous book that you really should check out. Writer, rug hooker, and art lover Tamara Pavich wrote this book for rug hookers who wish to take their fiber art a little deeper through designing. Her approach is to stimulate our imaginations, make us comfortable with drawing, and inspire us to go a bit farther than we are used to going. In these 144 pages, she presents 36 design ideas, ranging from simple to complex, to get us started. Almost anything can be a jumping-off point for your next rug: a style, a color, a favorite artist, fascinating materials, or a family story.

Are you ready to be inspired? Your next rug is waiting, so grab some paper and a pencil and get ready to design! We are pleased to present this short excerpt from the book to give you a taste of what you will find between the covers.
