Handmade Lace and Patterns

May 11, 2010


This book is actually written as if it were two separate books. Part 1, which I really enjoyed, is the story of lace in three well written chapters. Annette Feldman, has a nice “story telling” quality to her writing and fills the chapters with interesting anecdotes about the history of lace. Part 2 is a pattern book with seven more chapters including directions for tatting, hairpin lace and knitted and crocheted lace. I wasn’t as wild about Part 2 because there really wasn’t anything unique about it; granted, it was written in 1975. The book will probably be hard to find in the major retailers but is definitely available (new and used) at http://www.amazon.com.
