Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book explains the methods so clearly that I feel I could possibly attempt a small sample."  —Merseyside Embroiderers Guild



"I think I might not keep my other lacemaking books now, but get out my pillow and bobbins and maybe have a bit more success this time around. Very highly recommended."  —MyShelf.com



"A very practical book, and as it progresses from very simple to fairly difficult, I think it would keep one busy for some time!  —West Country Embroiderers

I hope this is returning as an art because the advance work is breath taking.

I must say, I found this book to be very easy to use for someone like myself, who has just begun learning to make bobbin lace. Clear pictures and clear instructions has assisted me greatly and with very little frustration while trying to learn this fine art. This book takes you from winding the bobbins and into lace patterns that gain in difficulty gradually, allowing you to work through the book, while developing your bobbin lace making skills. This book is a must have to the person wishing to learn bobbin lace making!

As a teacher of bobbin lace, I find this soft covered book by Gilian Dye and Adrienne Thunder a nice addition to a beginning student's library. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to learn the basics of bobbin lace without formal instruction. Gilian Dye and Adrienne Thunder are well known in the bobbin lace community for their talent.

Format: Paperback
Good book with a great deal of helpful information. I was looking more for the fine thread lace, whereas, this book goes beyond offering projects such as scarves using knitting yarn. Great beginner book, but not much more than that. If you are looking for traditional lace, this may get you started, but may frustrate you beyond that. All projects are organized, easily built upon for level of experience, and the instructions are easy to follow, with photos. More of a modern flair.

This book has marvelous illustrations and written directions. I just started learning bobbin lace with another book and found this was a valuable addition. Without the luxury of an experienced lacemaker looking over my shoulder as I learn I've had to rely on books and this one really was a quantum leap for me.

If you know nothing about Bobbin Lace, this is the place to start. Presents an excellent background in the basic stitches and leads you through practice exercises for each type of stitch. The six bookmarks at the beginning give you finished products quickly without a great deal of expense or time. It's also filled with pictures to compare your work with.

The rest of the book allows you to perfect your skills with slightly longer projects. They look like they will be just as well presented as the beginning section.

I have encountered only one problem. It is not necessary to purchase all the equipment they say you need. We bought only a pack of bobbins to start with; everything else needed could be adapted from things we had. Now that I know I want to do more, we can get the professional equipment.
