Researched in Alex's meticulous style "All about making - FLORAL BUCKS POINT LACE" explains the differences between working Geometrical and Floral Bucks Point Lace and then guides the lacemaker through a carefully selected progression of patterns ranging from edgings, squares and ovals through to a shaped jabot and doll's christening set, all of which are designed to help the reader master the Floral Bucks Point Lace techniques -- no samples in sight! There is even a chapter on working a larger pattern in strips with fine joining. The book is divided into six sections: Standard Floral Bucks Point, Kat Stitch, Regency Bucks Point, Very Fine Bucks Point, Black Holey and one with useful advice about threads and bobbins. Many patterns are shown in two sizes, so that those who do not wish to work with Egyptian cotton nos. 120/2 to 240/2 can instead use Egyptian cotton no. 100/2. Alex is generous with her advice, showing in great detail how to draft patterns and the tricks in making each one. There are beautifully clear photographs of the finished articles as well as detailed line drawings of individual techniques, demonstrating alternative methods of working and always encouraging the reader to experiment with working techniques for herself. This is a 'must-have' companion to the earlier book, "All about making -- GEOMETRICAL BUCKS POINT LACE".
