Verna Cox then explains how the hooked rug center is prepared and backed in readiness for the braids to be added.   The braiding technique is shown along with the special sew/lace technique used in adding the first row of braiding to the hooked rug.   Butting is also explained.

Rug Hooking & Braiding Made Easy

This thirty-five minute DVD shows the basics of both crafts; using yarn, cotton, denim and wool.

Even though this DVD is only thirty-five minutes long, it is packed with important information on the basic steps in both crafts of rug hooking and rug braiding.   The Rug Hooking section compares the Traditional style versus the Primitive style and demonstrates working with cotton, denim, wool yarn along with the traditional woolen fabrics.

The Rug Braiding section of the DVD explains the different technique needed to be used in working with Primitive cotton and denim rugs, versus the Traditional woolen fabric. Because the braiding is slightly different in both, the two methods are shown, side-by-side.
DVD $18.95
