THIS BOOK IS UNFORTUNATELY OUT OF PRINT AND OUT OF STOCK
by Irma Pervanja & Maja Svertlik
An introduction to the techniques of Idrija lace, starting with the basics and continuing with the main features of this popular braid lace. Although there is no English text - Slovenian, Italian and French text is provided - the diagrams and photographs are clear which should mean that, even if the the lacemaker has no knowledge of the languages, perhaps with the assistance of a translation program, progress is achievable. The quality of the format and the depth of its coverage, should certainly make the effort worthwhile.
15 patterns are also provided to allow the techniques to be practised, while producing some worthwhile pieces. Each pattern is presented with a photograph of the finished piece, a pattern and detailed working diagram(s).
