4.0 out of 5 stars Jenni's thoughts
Excellent and very clear instructions and photographic illustrations. Pricking patterns are printed in the book for convenience.Very interesting from the point of view of opening your mind to less traditional ideas. All that a beginner would require to start them off.
If you have some experience of lace making this book is too basic for you.

I found this a very helpful book as a complete newcomer to the craft of bobbin lace making. It gives clear instructions with helpful pictorial guides to the basics and provides prickings and instructions from the very beginning for making some attractive bookmarks as a way of introducing different stitches and the various skills needed as it works up to more complicated patterns.

Purchased alongside the House of Crafts Lacemaking Craft Kit this book has excellent photographic instructions for the beginner and also contains much information on local variations in the tools of the craft. The patterns are more complex than in the kit but, with the more detailed instructions, present a more challenging and ultimately more satisfying project.

Very well written and presented, this book is more likely to inspire one to continue in the craft and seek out better equipment than the kit.

Recommended.

Just got interested in lace so bought this book to find out what it is all about. Instructions are excellent, pictures might have been better with a greater colour contrast of threads. Worked my way through the projects and really pleased with the results. Did have to concentrate hard to get it right but it was definitely worth the effort.

Excellent book for beginners and advanced. New ideas which are always welcome whatever stage your lacemaking has reached. Advanced lacemakers often just want an easier pattern to be able to relax whilst making lace.

What I like about this book is the clear photographs showing exactly what the bobbins and work should look like on your pillow. I also like the fact that it shows alternatives to mats- a scarf definitely appeals using a thicker wool or something similar.
