Bobbin lace is one of the oldest crafts, dating back to at least the sixteenth century and possibly earlier. During the eighteenth century, bobbin lace design and execution attained the ultimate in beauty and richness. The linen threads were incredibly fine and the consummate skill of the lacemaker wove them into unmatched works of art.
Modern lacemakers — even beginners — can learn this age-old technique with this easy-to-follow book. An accomplished bobbin lacemaker demonstrates step-by-step the techniques for creating beautiful lace edgings, doilies, collars, belts, bookmarks, and more. With Ms. Southard's expert advice and helpful hints, you'll find it easy to add the elegance of lace to pillows, handkerchiefs, bolsters, fans — almost any apparel or household item.
After outlining a history of bobbin lace and introducing readers to the materials and recommended supplies, the author gets down to specifics. These include how to make a simple braid, an edging, how to turn a corner, how to begin without directions, how to make laces on a flat pillow, and much more. In addition, special sections explore projects to make, how to wash bobbin lace, and how to create bobbin lace designs.
With this book at your side, you'll soon discover the immense rewards and satisfactions to be had in mastering the art of bobbin lacemaking and creating heirloom-quality lace for yourself, family, and friends.
