Hook, Prod, Punch, Tuft: Creative Techniques With Fabric and Fibre by Lynne Stein.

This colourfully illustrated guide introduces new and established crafters to the traditional skills of hooking and its close relations prodding, punching and tufting. Textile artist Lynne Stein gives advice on materials, tools and equipment, and provides step-by-step directions - accompanied by vibrant instructional photographs - for 20 projects exploring playful design and quirky creativity, including rugs, cushions, bags and personal accessories. There are also lots of helpful hints on sustainably repurposing fabrics, yarns, and other precious and useful items that might otherwise be discarded. A list of international museum collections is also included, as are examples of the work of both historical and contemporary artists and designers such as Evelyn Ackerman, Anya Paintsil, Anna Perach, Joan Moshimer, and Lady Emma Tennant. A brief history of the traditional textile craft of rag rug making and other techniques, and ideas for their inclusion in community projects all demonstrate the vast potential for experimentation, self-expression and creativity within these processes. This book has plenty to fire and inspire and will encourage you further on your creative textile journey, making both decorative and functional items.
