Format: Paperback
For beginners in lacemaking, Pamela Nottingham starts with the basics. She lists and describes the essential tools of lacemaking and provides the reader with a series of patterns in a variety of lacemaking styles. With her usual meticulous attention to detail, patterns are well placed to copy for use, diagrams, instructions and explanations are clear, concise and placed where they are needed. The progression of patterns which build upon and reinforce previous lessons, ensures that the user will learn how to make lace, not just how to follow instructions for doing so. But Pam's book isn't just for beginners. The later patterns in Buckspoint and Beds laces offer challenges and new information to experienced lace makers as well. The patterns are well chosen for visual appeal, for challenge in the making, and for usefulness as magnificent gifts or personal treasures. Going beyond the mere how-to's one expects in a teaching manual, Nottingham explains the reasoning behind the instructions, demonstrates the logic governing the making of lace, and even provides a bit of history and lace lore to liven the expreience. This one is a winner. My only complaint is that there isn't even more to this feast. Ok, I admit it... I'm greedy.

Format: Paperback
This is the book that made it all clear to me. I knew that if I read what Pamela Nottingham said about a technique, the lightbulb would go on. Some lacemakers find her a little wordy, but the diagrams are extremely clear too. The updated selection of patterns is excellent, the instructions and illustrations cannot be beat. A definite keeper for any bobbin lacer.

This is the second book I would recommend for a person beginning to learn bobbin lace. The patterns advance quickly into a more complicated level. Definitely for the self starter.

le livre est arrivé en très bon état, bien emballé, mais le carton a été ouvert sur le trajet par quelqu'un? Une malveillance supplémentaire.
