I had only done 2 projects when I purchased this book. My Granddaughter who is 8 wanted to make something for her Mom for Mothers day. She choose the checkers and dots centerpiece and decided to do only 4 squares and to make it a trivet. She came over a couple of times and with minimal help was able to complete the project it turned out great and her Mom was impressed. She is currently working on the drink keeper for her Dad and I'm working on the blossom bag. The book is inspiring and easy to follow the only difficulty is getting materials. It requires planning and lead time since most items are only available online and even then mostly I've ended up cutting my own strips. I would highly recommend this book and it would be great for children as well as adults

I had never heard of locker hooking until a friend discovered it and showed it to me. I found this book to be very informative as to how to do this craft and now it is one of my favorite ways to spend an evening, or even an afternoon, for that matter. The book features some really great projects, some simple and some more involved. I really like it and am now an enthusiastic locker hocker! Thank you, Amazon.com.!

I like and am planning to make most of the projects shown. I love rugs but as the "mom" of a cat who thinks all rugs are scratching pads this is my solution; even if he shreds them a bit they will still look good. I tried the cheap way, using crochet hooks and plastic needles but after all the trouble decided to go with the proper hook. Finally something to do with those fabrics that have been around 25 years or more. Once you've tried a few projects you can begin designing your own since the author shows you how. Lots of step-by-step photos.

I never heard of locker hooking until I read about it on Craft Passion's blog. She had a review of this book and showed some of the projects. I loved the look of the trivet she made.

I bought the book and am now "hooked." So far I've made a few bracelets and trivets. I searched everywhere for a pretty tile to use in the trivet. I was able to get the rest of the supplies at a craft store.

Then after watching some of Theresa's videos on youtube I learned of her website, Color Crazy. She has all the supplies right there, even the tiles. She doesn't "advertise" her website in the book but provides clear instructions on how to make the fabric strips and suggests what locker medium to use.

The book includes the directions for several colorful and contemporary projects. The photos of the the steps are very helpful. They clearly show the techniques and steps involved for construction.

Format: Paperback
I came across locker hooking while researching ways to use up my scraps of fabric. Every blog I visited to gather more information about the craft recommended this book. I now join the ranks of happy fans that highly recommend this book (and the craft itself).

Pros:
1. Easy to understand instructions. Just the right amount of information to make a beginner succesful - without being boring or tedious.
2. Inspiring projects. My initial impression of locker hooking was right up there with country-looking braid rugs. However, the projects in the book are gorgeous: modern, trendy, fun, and/or sophisticated. I would be proud to display such projects in my home or give as gifts to my girlfriends.
3. Functional layout. It takes no time at all to become an "expert" in the craft just by reading through the basics in the beginning of the book. While reading through the directions for specific projects, you can quickly flip back to the basics to refresh your memory (page numbers are even noted in the project description so you don't have to search the front of the book page by page to find what you need).
4. Do-able. The projects herein are practical and do-able. These are not one-day/some-day dreams found in other craft books. Once you buy the rug canvas, locker hook, yarn, and fabric strips - you're ready to start... and finish the project.

I couldn't think of any cons - except that I would like to see even more ideas and projects (which can be found in the follow-up book, Locking Loops - which I also own and you can read my review). This book has a whopping 28 projects, so there is no room to complain.

The back cover reads, "Not your grandma's locker hooking (unless Gram is one hip chick!)." I agree 100%. Do not hesitate to buy this book.

I haven't used the book yet, but have spent alot of time looking through it. I tried a number of local craft stores and was unable to find it so was very happy to find it on Amazon and for a great price. The supplies may be a little hard to find. I finally figured out that except the hook being special the rest of the supplies are pretty common items. Your imagination is your only limit. Have fun and practice before trying to do anything complicated.

Recently I was introduced to locker hooking and fell in love with it. Having been a quilter for twenty-five years I have a vast accumulation of fabric. This is a wonderful way to use up fabric and reduce one's stash. What I like most about this book is the creativity. It takes the craft from the mundane to the artistic. There are varied projects from coasters, purses, hot pads, book covers to Easter baskets. It is an easily portable craft and does not require strict attention in most cases. There are quick, easy projects for beginners and more challenging ones after you learn the technique. I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes to learn locker hooking or someone already well involved in the craft.
