Pillow Lace and Bobbins
by Jeff Hopewell
A very useful booklet which gives an outline of the history of lacemaking in England - both East Midlands and Honiton - as well an outline of the origins of Continental laces.
The sections on bobbins, prickings and other lacemaking tools and equipment are particularly useful and interesting.
A popular booklet by an author who many will remember for his lace day talks, who is also a Church of England clergyman.
