Format: Hardcover
The Alphabet of Sheep is brilliant. It combines two outstanding traditions of Americana: rug hooking, and personal story telling. Pioneer women celebrated their families, friends, and experiences through their needlework in rug hooking, embroidery, and quilting. Patty Yoder brings the tradition to an even higher level through her sheep rugs, each representing a different letter of the alphabet, and each inspired by the events that comprise Ms. Yoder's life. Couple this with her superbly artistic eye, and extraordinary technique, and you have The Alphabet of Sheep. If you asked the finest "hookers" [rug hookers] in the world to identify the best, Patty would be on everyone's list. Her work is a treasure, and an important contribution to American art and craft.

This book is a total delight from the cover to the very last page. I loved seeing each and every rug and the fact that each one is a true masterpiece. I especially loved reading the story behind the creation of each rug, I LOVED that part of the book. This is a book for rug hookers, art lovers, anyone, it is a treat!

Anyone who is involved with fiber arts would enjoy this book. The composition and colors are wonderful. Appropriate addition for personal, public and academic library art collections. And you may never want to eat lamb again...

This is a charming book with very high quality photographs of the author's exquisite hooked rugs featuring sheep in many poses. Each rug has its own page with a one sentence title on the opposing page. At the end are more detailed descriptions of each rug. This book would make a wonderful gift for any rug hooker or collector of alphabet books.
