5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant little book June 24 2000
Format:Paperback
The book is practical and very easy to follow. The diagrams are clear. The use of color helps to avoid some of the confusion that arises when you first learn the craft and aren't quite sure what to make out of the instructions in front of you, and how it relates to what lies within your hands. Book is full of useful tips and hints.
It includes 27 different patterns: about 7 bookmarks [some of these variations of a theme as the book indicates], 9 apliqués, 4 lace trims, 4 samplers, 3 hankies.
There are wonderful ideas on how to use some of the samplers for table settings or even as photograph frames. An excellent book for beginners.

This was one of the first books I found when I took up bobbin lace nine years ago. Filled with attractive, simple patterns, clear diagrams, and many helpful hints, this book remains a favorite of mine. This is a wonderful resource, especially if you don't have a teacher. Geraldine Stott is one of the best in the business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Beginner's Manual Sept. 30 1999

I learned how to do bobbin lace solely through this book--with no help from a teacher. It explains the art of lace-making well and simply, from how to wind a bobbin all the way to complicated pattern designing. I have several "beginners" books in my collection, and none are as clear cut as this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do no be intimidated April 15 2011
By C. Most - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have no idea how D. Ballard came to the conclusion the diamond pattern was the first one to be worked, it is 24 pages into the text after cloth stitch, half stitch, and footsides which is about where it should be. The book encourages careful reading of the sections on how to interpret abbreviations and symbols, but provides the tools (mostly gradually) on how to 'read' a pattern which I find much more useful than written instruction. I am a self-taught lacemaker, and as with all self-teaching you must be very self-motivated, this book is no exception. The extra touches added were things I would have never known without personal tutor, and I am pleased with the book as a reference and clarification on points my online self-teaching could not cover. Regrettably, the pricetag for these books is high, so I recommended a high quality used copy.

Stott's books are very good even for beginning lacemakers. Lots of nice patterns and pretty good directions. Three more words so I can post this.
