History techniques- equipment- preparation- different types of materials- sources of designs- special pattern techniques- the complete how-to-do-it book for home rug hooking and braiding. A great deal more attention is given to hooked rugs than to braided rugs, so sell it chiefly to the home craftsman in that field. There are to be some 60 illustrations, 8 in full color, and numerous suggestions as to original designs, and use of scraps and odds and ends. Beginners should be able to follow the directions, and those who know something about it should find new ideas. Subtitled ""for pleasure and profit""- this is a book for the hobby field and for the home business as well.
