Book Description

1 Jan 2009
This work contains an exhaustive collection of stitches which have been developed in the traditional art of bobbin lacemaking since the 17th century, and is designed to aid all lacemakers in the recognition and working of each individual feature. The degree of accuracy and detail is the result of many years of research into the methods used in the lacemaking centres of Britain and Europe. Over 260 stitches and variations are described, ranging from the simplest to the most complex. The content has ben arranged so that all the information for each stitch is to be found on one page. The guide is laid out step-by-step and is aimed at both the working lacemaker and the student.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Book of Bobbin Lace Stitches 4 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book's name is exactly about the content. It contains the various Bobbin Lace Stitches. It is not an introduction book, but it is for someone who would like to pursuit more on the bobbin lace. I like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection of stiches 21 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
One of the best book in my collection. An amazing array of bobbin lace stiches, clear instructions, diagrams and working outline, and more than I had previously found in all of my lace books combined. (And I am a self-taught beginner!) So, definitely recommended.
