More Coming Attractions
We've got another new book coming soon: Rug Hooking Traditions with Magdalena Briner Eby. Magdalena Briner Eby lived in Perry County, PA during the Civil War. The rugs she hooked during her lifetime are regarded as quintessential examples of American folk art, prized in private collections and up-scale antique shops and auction houses all over the country. In the book are depictions of what life was like during this time for Magdalena and her family. The authors examine the materials she used in her rugs as well as her use of color and design. Over two dozen historic black and white photos and over eighty color photos of Magdalena's works are presented. This will be a book to savor on a cool, autumn eve, to inspire your own rug hooking projects.
Unfortunately I cannot offer a pre-order deal on this book; however, if you'd like me to reserve one for you, I have a limited supply on order. The book will retail for $24.95. I hope to have it in stock within a week or so.
Update: Due to numerous requests, I have enabled this book for pre-order, with the stipulation that I cannot pay for shipping for this particular title. Thank you for your interest! ~Wendy
