Discover: Delapré Abbey in Lace
by Jackie Poulter
A collection of original lace patters compiled by the author, to celebrate the newly restored Delapré Abbey in Northampton and in conjunction with the Lace Guild Exhibition 'Discovery'.
It comprises a collection of new designs in various lace
techniques, based on features and
structures found in the building. There are pieces of Torchon, Bucks,
Milanese, Beds and Russian bobbin lace, a couple of pieces of needle
lace, and a tatted motif. The patterns are accompanied by images of the
feature that was used as inspiration, and short
pieces of text about it. It is not a teaching book, but there are a
few diagrams and some instructions where they will help.
