Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is Snowden's (New Ideas for Miniature Bobbin Lace) second book of patterns for miniature bobbin lace projects suitable for dollhouses and dressing miniature dolls. It includes 1/12th scale patterns for 50 miniature Torchon, Binche, Bedfordshire, and Buckinghamshire lace projects with step-by-step instructions, prickings, diagrams, and photographs of the finished pieces, as well as difficulty ratings for each project. Although basic instructions are included, novices in bobbin lace would profit more from books such as Doris Southard's Lessons in Bobbin Lacemaking or Bridget M. Cook's Practical Skills in Bobbin Lace. Recommended for lace collections and for public libraries where demand warrants. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
