A very comprensive book covering this non-continuous bobbin lace technique, an exciting form of Duchesse, originally developed by Sister Judith de Kreyger at the Dutch convert at Etten-Leur.
After a brief outline of the history of the lace, the authors provide a section on techniques before setting out over 90 patterns, mainly for smaller motifs and animals but also including more complex pieces. Each has a photograph, pattern, helpful diagram(s) and written instructions/notes.
A book for the experienced lacemaker seeking a new challenge.
Excellent condition with protective overcover. Price clipped jacket with added original price label.
