New patterns of Point Ground lace are provided here with diagrams fully colour-coded and each pattern produced in simple diagrammatic form. Each pattern is presented with the relevant pricking, a full-size photograph of the completed piece of lace and a working diagram. The book progresses from the use of 13 pairs of bobbins through to 69 pairs. A feature of the book is the adaptation of traditional Point Ground lace patterns to widen the practical application of this lace form, so that modern lace makers can include corners, circles, ovals, collars, cuffs and motifs in their repertoire. The author is a lace maker, teacher, lecturer and designer whose work is frequently exhibited throughout Britain and Europe. She was a prizewinner at the "Concours International de Dentelles Miniatures" in Belgium in 1981 and is co-author of three previous books on lace making.
