Bobbin or pillow lace is a very old art which has almost died out except for a few regions of Europe, where lacemakers still carry on a small cottage industry or simply work for their own pleasure. Its decline due to the invention of lacemaking machines and a change in fashions, but now, like so many handcrafts, it is having a revival. Although it looks difficult, it is really easy to learn and relaxing to do. Furthermore, it does not require expensive equipment- just a pillow, bobbins, and pins to hold the interlacing threads in place as the lacemaker follows the pattern. The instructions in this book are clear, fully illustrated, and quite practical for a beginner. The lessons progress from simple to more advanced as the reader gains practice and confidence. Many patterns are given and many uses for handmade lace are suggested. Doris Southard is an expert in a variety of needlecrafts but prefers lacemaking to all others. She has been teaching bobbin lacemaking for a number of years, in classes and by mail. Her writing is amusing and persuasive and under her guidance the aspiring novice can master a new craft, and others who already have some expertise can increase their skills.
