I checked, and Van Sciver Bobbin Lace does have the book in her list. She is in New York.

As you can tell I am a little behind in keeping track of new books. I welcome and information from members.

I have 1 left for sale, unless I'm in Madrid so no idea of the cost of sending to USA.

"Schwarzarbeit 2" was published in 2007 and is mostly sold out by now.

The first book is discontinued and this one is near in the same situation.

So if you want this one, run.

For me it's one of the best books of chantilly lace. And yes, it has patterns. Too many of them.

Ulrike Voelcker is a lacemaker who is able to give evolution to chantilly lace. In the more recent books we have too many technique which make chantilly lace better, more beautifull and with a best result.

She has a very interesant way of make the design and pricking which make this more sure.

I have the pleasure to study design with her and it's the most interesant thing I have done in my life of lacemaker!

Holly, You wondered about how to know the order of work.  When I had this question, I was advised to go as far as you can in any section, then pick up a new section.  This simple guidance really helped.

where can we find it to buy it?

Comment by Lorelei Halley Administrator on December 10, 2020 at 9:00pm

I do have her first Schwartzeit book. There are 3 "beginner" patterns, but even those are difficult. I greatly admire her work in diagramming these complex laces.

Par contre, je n'ai jamais eu la chance de me procurer le 1er tome
