I knew nothing about rug hooking, but after reading this book, not only did I learn the basics, I would consider myself an expert. Oxford speaks clearly to all levels. Making learning easy and fun. In only a few short weeks you to could be an expert to. Oxford is an amazing liaison into the exciting world of fiber. I couldn't put this book down it is truely spectacular.

It's rare that a "how to" craft book is so clearly written. This book is informative, funny, and gorgeous. The photos are stunning. This is an important addition to any fiber-lover's library.

This is a stunning collection of rug photos wrapped around a superb introduction to punch technique. Oxford is a master of rug hooking as well as an engaging teacher and writer.

This is a wonderful book. The step by step instructions couldn't be better. However, even if you find yourself in trouble with the illustrations and careful instrucions, the question and answer section will set everything straight. The pictures are stunning, with something for everyone, from the abstract to the stunningly realistic. From the studio to the coffee table, this book is a must have!
