4.0 out of 5 stars Jenni's thoughts, 14 Feb 2009

This review is from: Beginner's Guide to Bobbin Lace (Beginner's Guides (Search Press)) (Paperback)
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.

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.

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.

This review is from: Beginner's Guide to Bobbin Lace (Beginner's Guides (Search Press)) (Paperback)
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.
