    I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in braiding rugs. Norma Sturges and her daughter Elizabeth have coauthored The Braided Rug Book: Creating Your Own American Folk Art. It is obvious that these ladies love making braided rugs. The introduction tells the history of braided rugs and there are many pictures of beautiful colourful braided rugs. The authors give detailed instructions with illustrations and pictures on how to braid several rugs, starting with the classic oval shaped rug I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in braiding rugs.

    This is another craft I probably won't ever get into - although I could well do rag rug making, which involves a lot less time and preparation and being horribly bothered about weights of fabric and so on. Gorgeous pictures, however. And if I had several lifetimes that I could live concurrently, one of them would be absolutely full of dedicated craft work.

    This is a great book, written by someone who clearly loves the process of making braided rugs. Sturges gives a brief history of the braided rug, then launches into how to make your own. Beautiful illustrations accompany clear, detailed directions. Considering how much these American masterpieces cost in a store, it's well worth the effort to make your own. And it's fun!
