4.0 out of 5 stars Bobbin Lace
This book is full of lovely designs for bobbin lace based on antique lace, but there are no instructions relating to the production of same. Therefore as a book of patterns you will need to be an experienced lace maker to be able to reproduce any of the designs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bobbin Lace, 24 Dec 2010
This review is from: Antique Lace Patterns (A Barbara Holdridge Book) (Paperback)
This book is full of lovely designs for bobbin lace based on antique lace, but there are no instructions relating to the production of same. Therefore as a book of patterns you will need to be an experienced lace maker to be able to reproduce any of the designs. However, as a book of lovely patterns these could be used in a variety of other craft formats as well as bobbin lace, providing you have the experience and knowledge to convert them. A lovely book though and one day I hope to be able to reproduce some of the ideas.
