Rags to Rugs: Hooked and Handsewn Rugs of Pennsylvania

Author: Patricia T. Herr

Rug hooking has been part of American women's household tasks for a long time. In southeast Pennsylvania, frugal needleworkers saved and shared their textile scraps to create useful, pretty rugs, especially in the late 19th and 20th centuries. To document the region's hooked rug arts, The Heritage Center of Lancaster County conducted the Lancaster County Rug Harvest from 2004 to 2006, which culminated in their lavish exhibit, 'Rags to Rugs, Pennsylvania Hooked and Handsewn Rugs.' This book serves as a permanent record of these rugs, the Rug Harvest and the exhibit" - from the back of the book.

Over 170 photographs. A great addition to anyone's library.
