Visual Introduction to Bucks Point Lace

£8.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is an introduction to Bucks Point lace, designed both as an instruction book for the beginner and as a reference tool for the more experienced lacemaker. The book contains 40 patterns, arranged in order of difficulty, each presenting a few new techniques and, for those who may not be familiar with the diagrammatic approach, there are simple written instructions explaining each new step. The most common techniques are set out in box form for easy reference and throughout, there are practical hints gathered over the author's many years of experience as a lacemaker and teacher.;Each pattern has an actual size pricking and a photograph of the finished lace. The early practice strips are worked to a large scale to help familiarise the new lacemaker with thin threads and pins; these are interspersed with actual lace articles, which will be decorative and useful as well as serving as samplers.;After working through this book, the beginner should be able to move on to its companion, "!00 Traditional Bobbin Lace Patterns", of which Geraldine Stott is also the author, as well as "Introduction to Bobbin Lace Stitches". She is co-author of "The Book of Bobbin Lace Stitches".VGC with library plate to free front end paper
