A comprehensive manual for making Geometrical Bucks Point Lace
concentrating on techniques as well as producing a number of attractive
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
When I wrote this book I included not only how to make the
defined projects, but also all the information you would normally pick up
from a teacher, such as helpful hints, how to make your lace look good, and
how to design your own pieces with confidence.
I have included everything I think is relevant from my 40 years of
experience of lacemaking. I hope you enjoy the book and find it useful!
The other books mentioned in the publisher's comments are currently out of
print. If you are interested in any of these books, please contact me and
I will re-publish any book when there is sufficient demand.
Alexandra Stillwell is a teacher by profession and author of
'The Technique of Tenerife Lace', 'Drafting Torchon Lace Patterns' and
'Cassell's Illustrated Dictionary of Lacemaking'. Originally studying
under Pam Nottingham and Vi Bullard, Alex has used her experience of many
years of teaching lacemaking, as well as maths and science, to produce a
clear and user-friendly manual for making Geometrical Bucks Point lace.
Alex continues teaching both in this country and in the USA.
Her detailed and in-depth research, and her skill in producing clear line
drawings, of which there are over 600 in this book, has resulted in a
comprehensive guide, unique in its field. The aim of this book is to help
the student to tackle each piece of work in turn, and ultimately to become
independent. The individual projects are varied and usable, and of a
convenient size, so that the student can progress within a reasonable
timescale. Alex's new approach to working hexagons makes them easier, and
produces improved results.
Details on drafting the patterns and designing, to be found in the End
Notes of each chapter, run in parallel with the information for making the
lace. Again, these progress in easy stages so that students may ultimately
be able to design their own. The End Notes also include a wealth of
alternative techniques and helpful hints.
This book is a 'must have' for all lacemakers from beginners to teachers.
