Save That Rug! A How-To Guide for Repairing Hooked Rugs shows everything you need to know to repair and refurbish hand-hooked rugs, with dozens of repair projects demonstrating multiple strategies (repairing stains, snags, moth damage and worn edges), care and cleaning, plus hundreds of pictures and illustrations. Any rug hooker can learn these skills and give these treasured heirloom rugs a new look and decades more use. 

This digital version can be viewed on your computer. It's really beautiful, with pages that turn just like the print version, only much less expensive, (not to mention no shipping fees!) It's perfect for my international customers, or anyone who doesn't need the physical book on their shelf. Click here to see a sample of this stunning version.

When you make your purchase, you will receive an email with a link to the digital book.

Watch this glowing review of this book by Deana David at Ribbon Candy Hooking. "The Rosetta Stone for fixing rugs... an 'out of the park' book... most timely, up to date, thorough, intelligent and easy to absorb... just the right amount of information to give you confidence to do all the different types of fixes..." and lots of other nice things! Thank you Deanna for that Coffee Time chat on Facebook!

Special Instructions For Downloading the PDFs:

Over the years, I've been trying to find an alternative to print books, because of the rising cost of printing, but also, the price of shipping! A book like this isn't workable for an eBook, because of the number of color photographs (and the tiny screens of the readers). This PDF version will give you all the information you need to repair old rugs, but for a fraction of the cost. So if you don't need the book on your bookshelf, or if you live outside of the United States, or you just want to save money, this version is for you!

There is a tremendous surge in interest in repairing old rugs, but few of the owners of these treasured rugs have the ability. Any rug hooker can use these practical techniques to repair old rugs. I've often heard rug hookers say they could never sell one of their hooked rugs, but how about making money using your skills to help keep the last generation's rugs going for many more decades to come?

This book is still protected by copyright, of course, so for your own personal use. Please don't share the PDFs, Hopefully, the low price will be appealing to everyone, and the information can get out to the people who need it.

After you make your purchase, you will receive an email with a link to download the files. There are 17 separate PDFs to download. Because each page has big color pictures, the files have to be relatively small, so they don't take forever to download. You only get one chance to download the files, so make sure you get every one! 

Here is a list of the files, so you can double-check that you've gotten every one:
