Excellent pattern book Jan. 12 2012
By Katelyn Schreyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book of 100 patterns for Bucks Point bobbin lace, starting with geometric patterns and moving on to floral patterns. Most of the patterns are straight edgings, with a few insertions, doilies, and edgings with corners. The patterns all have prickings, actual-size photos, and colored diagrams. The text accompanying the pattern is limited to small observations, so the book useful for speakers of any language.

The patterns are arranged by number of pairs used, which is a rough analog for difficultly. They range from 10 pairs + gimp to 88 pairs + several gimp pairs. With two dozen pairs, you'll be able to do anything in the first third of the book.

This book is not an instrucitonal text. It assumes you know how to make a picot, and what a honeycomb stitch is. I would recommend that learners find a copy of The Technique of Bobbin Lace and use that to learn both basic bobbin lace and the beginning techniques of Bucks Point, and then purchase this book as a wealth of practice materials.

great intro and reference for Bucks Point Dec 27 2008
By md - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book of Bucks Point lace. It isn't an introduction to lacemaking, but it includes enough basic material to explain Bucks Point to someone already familiar with other styles. The patterns range from simple ones a novice would enjoy to some that require a lot of experience, huge amounts of time, and 80+ pairs of bobbins. It's a good reference for anyone interested in learning a lovely old style.
Beautiful & Challenging Patterns for The Lace-Maker Oct. 14 2014
By lilgoatlady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are so many beautiful patterns in here that I know I'll never get around to working even samples of all the ones I like. As everyone else has said, this ISN'T a book for an absolute beginner, but it does have some "simpler" patterns (which I'm not much past.) If you're really looking for a challenge in lace-making, and want to create an heirloom, this is the book you need to have in your library. I can't say anything negative about it.

You might also look in to the same author's "A Visual Introduction to Bucks Point Lace," which may be a little more beginner-friendly and also has some beautiful patterns.
