Back in print. Basket weave, canvas weave, four-shaft huck lace, multi-shaft huck, spot Bronson, lace Bronson, ans Swedish lace are all covered in this wonderful reference book on the most common lace patterns.

If you want to design your own handwoven lace pieces, then you will definitely want to own this little volume. There are a few color illustrations of lace cloth, but the real value in this book are drafts and design instruction on how to create your own laces. Basketweave, huck, lace-Bronson and Atwater-Bronson, Swedish lace, Canvas weave, and more. This is a reference book to refer to over and over again. Many of the drafts in this book are four and eight shaft, but there is an appendix for weaving with 12 and 16 shafts at the very end of the volume. ( )

A nice little volume containing information about most of the lace weaves, including how to design your own patterns. Although there are examples for multishaft looms, you will find a wealth of material for the four shaft loom. Great woven lace resource. BM

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0934026661, Paperback)

Both new and experienced hand weavers will find inspiration in this beautiful guide to creating lace. While true laces are laboriously made with needles or bobbins, hand weavers can use a loom to quickly produce lovely lacy fabrics. The loom-controlled textures depend upon groups of threads that work together and do not reveal their full effect until the cloth comes off the loom and is washed. Suitable for self-study or class use, this book offers weavers a sense of design mastery and a wealth of ideas and lace patterns.
