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!
