punch needle primitives and magdalena briner eby

I found a beautifully illustrated book by Evelyn Lawrence and Kathy Wright filled with pictures of hooked rugs done by Magdalena Briner Eby  (1832-1915) from Perry County, Pennsylvania. While Magdalena worked with wool and rug hooking, primitive design and punch needle also make a perfect pair.
