A Guide to Embroidered Laces.  By Margaret Stephens.

This gem of a book is a step by step beginners guide to a Reticella type lace  but worked within fabric after the cut out squares are stitched around.  This is the part that has always stopped me from working lace like this, so now I can feel more confident in withdrawing threads and creating the hole in which to work the lace.

Her photographs and diagrams of each step are very clear, and she takes  Small steps so the complete novice can understand what is what!

She is an excellent teacher, ( she got me going with needlelace many years ago!) and this shows though in this book, as it progresses with clear instructions on how to cut away and make the grid, to step by step instructions on how to fill the grid with a variety of motifs.

There are 15 motifs shown, and corners and an edge,  and at the end of the book are some patterns for more complex designs. Her samples show multiple motifs arranged within the same piece to make a variety of patterns

There is a page of instructions for Left-handed workers too.

 Ever the practical person, her book is produced in a small sized format so it can sit nicely in your bag and go out and about with you!

If you like embroidery as well as needlelace – this is a “Must Have” book.

The book is available from   http://au.blurb.com/bookstore/c-crafts-hobbies

Thank you Lorelei. No I don't have a cell phone, so that is one less worry!!!

I was just looking for tabs like when I add a photo to the Photos section.  OK, I can do a Copy & Paste.  I have 3 reviews I can send you ready to go! (they have been published in magazines already, but I think I still own the copyright, or whatever!  I will do it now!

Type your review into a comment box here on this page. See the gray bar just at the top of the comment box? The 2nd icon from the left is for adding a photo. Put the photo into your device and give it a file name. Click the photo icon, then type in the name of the photo file.

If you are working from a cell phone (mobile) I'm afraid you will have to figure it out yourself. I know that it is possible to email a photo from your phone to your email address that you use for your computer. Then you can work from your computer and type in the book review.

How do we add a book review and photo of the front cover?

I can offer a review on the Borris Lace book (needlelace)
