This progressive instruction course covers both classic and contemporary needlelace and is backed by easy-to-follow diagrams and photographs, including many close-ups of the lace being worked. Published for the first time in paperback, it will appeal to all those enthusiasts (including embroiderers) who wish to achieve real fulfilment and pleasure from the skill. Needlelace guides the reader through every stage of each project and covers the main forms of classic needlelace, notably Venetian Gros Point, Hollie Point and Point de Gaze. The lacemaker will then be able to design and work his or her own patterns from the selection of component samples given here.
