The comprehensive guide provides the lacemaker with step-by-step instructions and illustrations on the techniques which make up this type of lacemaking. Divided into ten easy-to-follow sections, alternative methods of construction are closely examined and explained. Bridget M. Cook begins with starts and edges, describing the techniques of replacing threads and adding pairs, joinings, sewings, connections and crossings. Additional information is provided on picots, tallikes and venetian cords, plaits and braids. Other sections look at carrying pairs, raised work, corners, curves and holes, endings, moving work under construction and the mounting of completed lace. Practical Skills in Bobbin Lace will help all lacemakers to increase their repertoire of techniques.
