The Technique of Branscombe Lace

The Technique of Branscombe Lace


- +

by Lillie D Trivett

This book starts by tracing the origins and early history of this East Devon needlelace, including the author's own memories of learning to make the lace as a child.

A very detailed section describes the technique including over 40 stitches and working hints.

A pattern section includes something for the beginner and the more experienced, including both traditional and more modern designs. A final section illustrates a variety of needlelaces so that they can be compared with Branscombe lace.

Good black and white photographs and very clear stitch and working diagrams throughout.

In very good condition with only minor rubbing/abrasions to dust jacket. Previous owner's bookplate on front endpaper.
