Knotted lace is still practised in the Eastern Mediterranean, particularly by Greek, Lebanese and Armenian women. This book shows the reader how to make doilies, bridal accessories and bed linens using only a needle, thread and scissors. A variety of lace designs and motifs are included.
Intricate, beautiful, and delicate, the ancient craft of knotted lace handwork has traditionally passed from person to person. This simple needle lace involves making loops of different sizes, shapes, and lengths and then combining them to form extraordinarily graceful designs. Here are easy to follow techniques and patterns, taught to the author by her Greek mother-in law, for pretty lacy doilies, collars, Christening gowns, and more--all surely destined to become treasured heirlooms in the years to come.
