This useful book contains some patterns and designs, but mainly concentrates on the technical details of the stitches and methods, in order to supply the reader with sufficient knowledge to enable them to work their own patterns.

"The clear and straightforward descriptions given in systematic progressive stages and the large number of diagrams, should prove extremely useful to all lace workers."
