back add to cart buy now

74 Pages. This book is quite a unique find, and certainly a good study in both Point Lace and Tatting. Very different than anything you may see today, it is written as an series of letters from an aunt to her niece on the beginning steps in working tatting and point lace. Even the most basic points are covered, such as wrapping your work in a handkerchief to keep it clean. All of the basic stitches of point lace are discussed - point de bruxelles, point de venise, point d'angleterre and rosette of ditto. For tatting the instruction begins with the proper holding of the shuttle to the basic stitches and knots. The finished projects include, cuffs, handkerchief edgings, a child's dress, an infant's dress, a Vandyke collare and much more. An ancient pattern book that is both a rare and quite personal study in Victorian Lacemaking.
