    aulsmith: If you are daunted by the instruction in Stott for making the pillow and getting started, give this one a try. You'll probably want Stott later, but Dye will get you started quicker.

While it's not aimed at being an introductory text, it does cover the basics enough to be a starter volume.

The designs include several styles of bobbin lace, and both traditional and more modern patterns. It also has starts and ends for bookmarks, to be designed oneself, as well as a number of practice exercises to improve one's skills and expand one's own designing capabilities.

I am looking forward to trying some of the more advanced patterns! but I need to improve my skillset first. ( )

Excellent for beginning lacemakers. There are some errors, particularly with the sampler on page 70. The bookmarks are some of the prettiest around. ( )
