Books > Lacemaking Books > Contemporary Lace for You

by Jane Atkinson
A very attractive book both in terms of presentation and content which will appeal to the many lacemakers who are inspired by the modern lace form.
 
Inspired by the landscape around her, the author uses a wide variety of thread - including those used for knitting, knitting and weaving - to translate natural patterns into practical, colourful and useful contemporary lace.
 
This is a thoroughly practical primer that guides the lacemaker through a complex subject - how to tackle design and to choose and use yarns, colours and grids
 
Superb photography throughout, taken on location in Dorset by David Bird.
