All the Latest Books

October 29th, 2014

bl287Once again we have looked far and wide to bring you the best from the latest crop of tatting and lacemaking books.

Top of the list is Ulrike Voelcker’s latest,  Barjac Ombrée , which features an otherwise forgotten French lace, rediscovered  and given a name  by the author, just a few years ago.

Fans of the early book on lace jewellery by the Estonia designer Lia Looga – and in fact, anyone interested in making attractive bobbin-made lace jewellery – will welcome her second volume,  Bobbin Lace Jewellery & Accessories II (shown left),  which is packed full of lace jewellery ideas   

The many fans of Idrija lace techniques will enjoy the latest from the Idrija Lace School. Idrija Lace – Narrow Cloth Stitch  is a  step-by-step manual, describing the techniques of narrow cloth stitch with a number of projects, including motifs and pictures 

If you are looking for a complete set of lace for a Christening in geometric Bucks Pont lace, take a look at  Buckinghamshire Baby by the popular designer Jane Lewis.

Amongst a number of books that explore Continental lace, are Le Point de Paris by Martine Piveteau, Reve de Dentelle : Cluny et Guipure by Nathalie Hubert and  Erzgebirgische Spitzenkunst, an excellent folder of patterns by Regine Siebdrath.

Tatters will enjoy several new books from Japanese designers, each presented in the usual excellent way we have have come to expect.  Tatting Lace Accessories by Kou Nanami, has 23 attractive, wearable accessory projects while the new English edition of New Tatting by Tomoko Morimoto, offers much for the beginner and is helpful to all.

Plenty there for everyone – and some excellent ideas for Christmas gifts,
