Bedfordshire Lace by Jean Leader

This practical book, written by an acknowledged expert, is dedicated to the novice and experienced lacemaker wishing to learn Bedfordshire Lace techniques.

Information is given about the equipment needed for bobbin lacemaking, how to make a pricking, and wind thread on the bobbins.

Instruction explains how to work cloth stitch and half stitch, plaits, windmill crossings, picots and leaf-shaped tallies, and how to finish a piece of lace.

A series of 26 patterns, some traditional and others designed more recently, are supported by instructions, photographs and diagrams.

The patterns include small motifs, edgings - some with corners for handkerchiefs - butterflies and three exquisite collars.
