    Gilian Dye is the author of Beginning Bobbin Lace and Bobbin Lace Braid. Adrienne Thunder is active in local, national, and international lace organizations. Both women have served on the executive committee of The Lace Guild, and together they have developed lace patterns and techniques for working with nontraditional materials.
    To the uninitiated, a lace pillow set up with dozens of bobbins looks very complicated, but this manual shows the simplicity of the basic moves: only four bobbins are in use at any one time, and there are only two moves?twist and cross. Focusing on Torchon lacemaking techniques?Bruges and Chantilly lace are two other well-known traditions?these lessons begin with small lace bookmarks worked in various designs before progressing to full-scale projects: a purse, a bag, a cushion, and two scarves. All are presented with step-by-step instructions, close-up photos, and a complete set of pricking patterns. Additional material covers techniques for adding beads and tassels and working with such unconventional materials as wire, cable, and thick wool yarn.

    • Great Beginner Book

      This book is good for a beginner as it has excellent step by step photos and easy patterns. I could rave on more about the contents but my copy has already been loaned to a friend. She will probably buy her own copy now she has seen it. There is a bookworm pattern for anyone just starting bobbin lace and a scarf for later on. I am not a beginner but I wanted this book in my lace library.
