Item Description...
This book features original designs and motifs, inspired by the long traditions of the craft

Canadian rug hooker Deanne Fitzpatrick presents a collection of colorful, whimsical designs for welcome mats, area rugs, chair pads, and other decorative household items. Inspired by the seascape, the people, and the long rug-making traditions of the communities of the Atlantic coast, Deanne has adapted some of her favorite motifs to create practical, pictorial hooked canvases-Kissing Fish welcome mat, Old Rose oval rug, Coastal House chair pads, Dancing Women rug, and more.

She provides the basic hooking instructions and tips on choosing the right backing (burlap or linen), gathering fabric (silks, wools, velvets-or just about anything else you can cut into strips), and binding the edges. She also provides templates for each of the 33 projects and instructions on transferring and positioning the motifs. Scattered throughout the book are inspiring photographs of Fitzpatrick's many award-winning rugs, her stories of traditions that inspire her work, and insider's tips for shortcuts and techniques. The whimsical, folk-art-style designs range from simple to more complex and will appeal both to beginners and experienced rug hookers. The technique is simple, and the materials are few and easy to find.

Great Book  Oct 6, 2008
Beautiful book with lots of great images of some really wonderful rugs and mats. Lots of great info and ideas.
What a great rug hooking book!  Jun 22, 2008
This is just a wonderful book. I very much enjoyed reading Deanne Fitzpatrick's narrative of the way her life in the Canadian Maritimes has influenced her work. The photographs are excellent and show the detail of the work. Even the recipe for the Oatcakes (page 42) was great!

This book is an inspiration for experienced rug hookers, and has good basic instruction for the beginner.

I also enjoy reading Deanne's "diary" on her website [...]. The integration of personal philosophy, art and creativity all come together in an remarkable way.
Deanne, what were you thinking??  Jun 18, 2008
If you already own East Coast Rug-Hooking Designs DON'T buy this one. The books are almost identical........Wonderful books... but you don't need two of the same designs and in many instances same words accompanying them. I would gladly give 5 stars except for the fact that Hooking Mats and Rugs is a copy of an earlier book, which I already own!!
Beautiful designs  May 12, 2008
These hooked designs are wonderful--really unique. Not at all like the typical traditional patterns you usually find out there. The colors and shapes are bright and bold and each pattern tells a story. I love the author's way of working, too. There's no right and wrong way. She lets each design take you where it wants to go. So inspiring! I can't wait to make my first rug!
Hooking Mats and Rugs (33 New Designs from an Old Tradition  Apr 19, 2008
THIS IS NOT A NEW BOOK! I felt cheated when I received it. I have the author's previous book "East Coast Rug-Hooking Designs (New patterns from an old tradition)" and the patterns WERE THE SAME! The format of the books differed but the content were basically the same. Most foul trick! I love supporting fellow rug hookers, so I purchase their books. Please tell me that there was some kind of mistake at the printers! Needless to say it is going back to this site. I must add that if you don't have the version "East Coast Rug Hooking Designs" then go ahead and purchase this one. This latest version is a bit larger, and the pages are brighter than the last. They are good books, but if you have one - you don't need the other.
