Torchon Lacemaking: A Step-By-Step Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Essential materials, equipment, and techniques to this beautiful skill are explained step-by-step in an indispensable guide for all lacemakers, textile artists, and designers
 
Torchon lacemaking is a textile art steeped in tradition—the skills required are often perceived by beginners to be well out of their reach. This practical book describes those skills step-by-step, making them accessible to all. It explains traditional techniques through a series of specially designed samplers. Although color is not traditional in bobbin lace, it has been used here to great effect so the path of each thread can be clearly followed through the sampler. Essential equipment and materials are described in detail. This book also offers instructions for a super-beaded sampler, advice on adapting and designing patterns, a guide to joining and mounting lace, troubleshooting hints, and information on suppliers and museums with lace collections.

About the Author

Jan Tregidgo has been making bobbin lace for 30 years and teaching lacemaking for more than 20 years. She was awarded a medal of excellence by the Lace Guild in 2007 for her lacemaking skills.
