Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This beginner's book is an attempt to keep the technique of lacemaking (a fading art even during the Victorian era) alive among modern crafters. Bedfordshire lace is a form of bobbin lace developed during the mid-19th century and known for its intricate floral patterns. Underwood, an expert in the lacemaking tradition of the English East Midlands, takes lacemakers new to this style through 20 lessons intended to teach the basic stitches, styles, and techniques. Most of the projects are borders or insertions, and prickings for each project are provided. Basic knowledge of bobbin lace technique is assumed. VERDICT This unique, specialized book is most suitable for libraries with a specific demand for the subject.
