I've read several books on different types of home rug making; this is the only one that covers almost everything. (The only type of textile floor covering that is left out is the painted floor cloth.) The narrator's relaxed and competent style is perfect, allowing the listener to concentrate on the information. I hope she continues to volunteer! 💜
