    The lacemaker of today pursues her art as a hobby and very rarely as a means of earning her living, and this has brought about a change in her attitude towards the finished product. Since lace is no longer widely used in fashion she will need to find new outlets for it; she will wish to produce something that is practical as well as creative, something that is capable of standing up to the requirements of life today, while still retaining the charm and delicacy of traditional laces. Here, then, is a collection of patterns making use of traditional stitches and techniques, but with a modern interpretation.

    ‘Modern’ does not, however, mean futuristic or impressionist. The lacemaker will still instantly recognise the old designs such as Bruges, Bucks Point and Torchon, but techniques have been simplified wherever relevant, to adapt them to modern materials and scale of work. The introduction of colour to lacemaking and different threads that are machine washable, are important innovations, as are the ideas for lace pictures, paperweights, lampshades, bookmarks and three~dimensional models.

    There are introductory chapters on equipment and the stitches, techniques and fillings used in the patterns, so that a relative novice can attempt a number of them. But this book is specifically intended for the lacemaker who has already mastered these basic processes and is ready to experiment with them. The patterns are lavishly illustrated with working diagrams, prickings that are ready to trace from the page, and black and white and colour photographs of the finished articles.

  • E P Publishing 1982
    4to, min bmps to bds o/w F/F. Reprinted from the 4th edition 1902. 1960 gms
    (Order reference 11398).

    This is a classic and comprehensive work on this craft, which can, in the finest examples, justly be described as a unique art form.

    After introductory chapters on the subject in general, the book goes on to describe the development of the art over many centuries and throughout Europe, from Russia to Ireland. The many illustrations are an integral part of the narrative; they not only show the detailed points of technique, but also include many contemporary portraits in which elaborate lace is seen in context as part of the costume of the period.

    A book of great interest to the general reader, it will be an inspiration to the adventurous needleperson, and equally a fascinating and invaluable source book for the collector and the discriminating visitor to the stately home and museum.

This book is the first of its kind, and will prove invaluable to all those with a real interest in working lace.

    The origins of crochet undoubtedly go back to the earliest uses of threads for decorative and practical purposes, and one of the continuing appeals of the craft has been the speed with which attractive results are obtained. Ena Maidens, an experienced crochet teacher and a well-known exhibitor of her own crochet work designs, has set down the basic techniques so that anyone can learn to crochet from this book, and then shows some of the prettiest - and more unusual — variations. These include the delicate Irish crochet, the bold colours of Bosnian crochet, hairpin lace and broomstick crochet (also known as jiffy lace), the form that probably gives the quickest results.

    An interesting inclusion is the Chinese-inspired tambour embroidery, which has recently enjoyed a revival, and framewoven crochet lace, which can be made in a comparatively simple form on a small wooden frame. Many readers will also be delighted to see that the author has written chapters on Tunisian crochet, with its own type of hook and technique, and on Continental looping and filet crochet.

    There are stitch instructions for each of the crochet varieties described and patterns for garments and accessories that can be made in the different forms, fully illustrated with photographs and line drawings. There are explanatory charts for crochet terms, symbols and hook sizes and a very useful final section on the care of crochet.

    The delicate art of lace knitting has flourished in the Shetland Islands for the past 150 years alongside the tradition of the well loved Fair Isle designs. Using the finest yarn spun from the wool of the native sheep of the islands, Shetland women evolved intricate stitch patterns which were passed down from one generation to another, and made exquisite items of clothing – shawls, scarves, wedding veils, christening dresses, socks and gloves - to become treasured family possessions and also to provide an important source of income. 120 pages, 2 line diagrams and over 40 photographs.

    Filet lace, or Lacis, is the traditional use of embroidery and darning stitches on a net ground. Since its full-flowering development in Europe during the Middle Ages there have been times when it was popular in all sections of society as well as periods when the art and craft has been driven underground by swings of fashion.

    The background to the modern-day inheritance of design and technique is followed up by instructions on basic methods with worked examples and step-by-step explanations of problems to be encountered and solved.

    The main body of the book presents over 80 patterns for the home lacemaker to work and develop, some dating from the Italian Renaissance and pre-Revolutionary France. These are followed by chapters on freehand design techniques and tips on finishing and mounting worked pieces. Pauline Knight also illuminates the variants of Filet — Filet Guipure and Filet Richelieu.

    With over 100 photographs, working diagrams and line illustrations — many unpublished and from rare sources — this should be an irresistible book for all those interested in extending their lacemaking repertoire.

    (Order reference 3448).

    First published in 1908, written by one of the editors of Mrs Bury- Palliser's History of Lace, this is a particularly well-balanced study of old lace.

    The author traces the development of lace from an early embroidery technique to its main branches in needle lace and bobbin lace. The book is remarkable in its readiness to tackle original source material, and in several cases the author was able to correct errors which had crept into earlier works and become fossilized through repetition.

    The book is organised in chronological order of development in the chief lacemaking areas. In the first chapters on lace and cutwork, Mrs Jourdain produces evidence that needle laces were being made at a much earlier date than is commonly thought. She supports her statements with references to early documents and even frescos showing examples of cutwork and needlepoint fillings.

    She moves on to deal with the gradual spread of both lace forms, giving a full description of each regional variety. Each new type is well documented and illustrated by clear photographs of examples from collections, many of which have been dispersed long since and so are no longer available for study.

    In the chapters devoted to English laces, there is much helpful information about the dominant types, but the author also deals with the lesser known areas of lacemaking, such as Sherborne in Dorset and the Isle of Wight. Clear examples of some of our 'lost' laces are shown - for instance, three pieces of Ripon lace are illustrated.

    This book is a valuable companion for both the collector and the lacemaker.

Since its full-flowering development in Europe during the Middle Ages there have been times when it was popular in all sections of society as well as periods when the art and craft has been driven underground by swings of fashion.

    In this book, Pauline Knight aims to bring Filet lace directly to a wider audience and pass on her knowledge of the skills involved — in fact they require few tools and materials and quickly reward the
    novice.

    The background to the modern-day inheritance of design and technique is followed up by instructions on basic methods with worked examples and step-by-step explanations of problems to be encountered and solved.

    First published in 1908, written by one of the editors of Mrs Bury- Palliser's History of Lace, this is a particularly well-balanced study of old lace.

    The author traces the development of lace from an early embroidery technique to its main branches in needle lace and bobbin lace. The book is remarkable in its readiness to tackle original source material, and in several cases the author was able to correct errors which had crept into earlier works and become fossilized through repetition.

    The book is organised in chronological order of development in the chief lacemaking areas. In the first chapters on lace and cutwork, Mrs Jourdain produces evidence that needle laces were being made at a much earlier date than is commonly thought. She supports her statements with references to early documents and even frescos showing examples of cutwork and needlepoint fillings.

    She moves on to deal with the gradual spread of both lace forms, giving a full description of each regional variety. Each new type is well documented and illustrated by clear photographs of examples from collections, many of which have been dispersed long since and so are no longer available for study.

    In the chapters devoted to English laces, there is much helpful information about the dominant types, but the author also deals with the lesser known areas of lacemaking, such as Sherborne in Dorset and the Isle of Wight. Clear examples of some of our 'lost' laces are shown - for instance, three pieces of Ripon lace are illustrated.

    This book is a valuable companion for both the collector and the lacemaker.

    PILLOW LACE is a thorough and graduated course in the simpler types of English and foreign lace, including Russian, Torchon, Cluny, plaited lace, and Saxony Guipure. Concise instructions and clear, detailed working diagrams are supplemented by samples of the finished lace.

    The book is an established classic in its field. It was published originally in 1907 to meet an earlier revival of interest in hand~made lace, when written material on the subject was much scarcer than today.
