Foundation Magic: A Rug Hooker's Guide to Preparing Patterns 

Join author and artist Victoria Rudolph as she demystifies the sometimes-tricky art of transferring a design to linen and other rug hooking foundations. Learn the differences between the types of backings. Explore the tools to use, how to piece cloth together for a larger rug, and how to create your own light box. Throughout, Victoria shares her secrets of inspiration and how she gets from idea to finished hooked piece. Illustrated by some of her recent projects, such as creating a series or hooking a coat of arms, you will learn how this artist/rug hooker has built up her body of work. And, as an illustration of her process, she shows us her gallery of hooked confections: candy apples, wedding cakes, and donuts!

FOUNDATION MAGIC is a cornucopia of ideas and inspiration for your bookshelf . . . and It all starts with a good foundation!


When you join the book club today, we will ship you our latest book for only $21.95 USD... that's 21% off the retail price ($6 in savings!).

Mastering the Art of Punch Needle Rug Hooking: Techniques and Projects


Do you want to learn how to punch rugs? This is the book for you! Author Simone Vojvodin leads you through the basics—What do I need to know? What materials do I need? How do I get ready to start punching?—to more advanced and detailed techniques. Learn how to estimate yarn amounts, which backing is the best to use, how to move your project around on the frame. You will find expert instructions on punching words, sculpting, using wool fabric strips, fancy stitches, and much more.


More than an instruction book, you will find six of Simone’s charming projects, covering every level of skill, from beginner to advanced. Written as if you have a friendly instructor by your side, the projects are designed to lead you through different key learning experiences and to help you progress from complete beginner to more advanced puncher. 


Add this to your rug hooking/rug punching bookshelf for a reference book you will return to, time and time again.
