Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Twining, usually worked on some type of frame or on a loom, is a type of weaving that involves twisting weft strands around warp (vertical) strands to make a strong and decorative fabric. Twining done with rag strips is an effective technique for making sturdy objects like rugs, bath mats, baskets, and bags. Irwin has been studying this craft since 1980 when (as a census-taker) she met Lillie Sherwood, an 80-year-old rug weaver living on an isolated ranch in Idaho, and discovered a craft that she, an experienced weaver, had never seen before. This richly illustrated book includes step-by-step instructions for nine samplers and ten full-sized twined rugs as well as information on constructing a basic twining frame and preparing the rag-strip weft. A photo gallery of rugs and personal stories of rug twiners round out this fascinating volume. Warmly recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

The folk art of twined rag rugs will not die out if author Bobbie Irwin has her way. She has written Twined Rag Rugs with such clarity and personal enthusiasm that she is bound to succeed in her goal.
