4.0 out of 5 stars For experienced lacemakers 27 Jun 2013
By Donnar
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is full of great ideas, but you can tell it was written by very experienced lacemaker, so beginners will have some difficulties to understand, as the sketches with legends are not very clear. Otherwise it is very good summary of different lace-making techniques.

5.0 out of 5 stars An older book but still excellent 7 Feb 2014
By L. Schaefer - Published on Amazon.com
I've had a copy of this book for a looonnngggg time. Many other craft books in my library have come and gone, but not this one. It gives good basic overviews on a variety of lacemaking techniques including (but definitely NOT limited to ) topics such as bobbin lace, crochet, Ayrshire, netted lace, and has a particular emphasis on needle-made laces. It does include basic patterns so you can create samplers of the techniques. The photos are in black and white but are sharp and show excellent detail.
