Description


A LACE GUIDE for MAKERS and COLLECTORS. This book includes a bibliography and a five-language nomenclature. It is hoped that this little manual will prove of use to students of stitchery in general, - or of bobbin lace in particular, - to see hhow certain meshes are woven; that it may aid those planning to produce lace either by hand or machine, in comparing and judging effects, in advance, and that it may assist collectors and classifiers to identify lace: for after all, it is the actual lace which finally determines a variety, only certain meshes being used in a lace of pure type. Originally published in 1917. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
