Needle-Made Laces and Net Embroideries: Reticella Work, Carrickmacross Lace, Princess Lace and Other Traditional Techniques Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reticella work, carricmacross lace, princess lace, and other traditional techniques developed by lace-makers in Ireland, England, Spain, and other countries resulted in finished pieces of unrivaled beauty that continue to inspire needlecrafters. Now needleworkers can learn to make exquisite lace and net embroidery in styles that originated in the centuries-old lace-making centers of Europe.

This volume is a classic guide to the single-thread-and-needle styles of lace-making: complete instructions and clear stitch diagrams explain how to make both needle-run and needlepoint laces. In sections of their own, tatting and Irish crochet receive the same clear treatment. Even the fascinating history of lace-making is covered in some detail, and excellent advice on the care of lace is given in conclusion.

With this versatile sourcebook for reference, you, too, can create the special pieces of a lifetime: bridal veils, elegant gowns, shirts and blouses, shawls, scarves, curtains, table and bed linens. Among the lovely lace and net embroidery designs in this easy-to-follow guide, you'll find geometrics, florals, sprays, lovers' knots and other pattern classics. The lace-making art is not lost, just waiting to be rediscovered in this wonderful volume and revived in your capable hands.
