LACE MAKING AND COLLECTING. AN ELEMENTARY HANDBOOK. Originally published in 1919. This little book has been written with the intention of being within reach by all. It teaches the first steps in some of the well known laces in order to set the reader so far on her road that she may be able to see clearly what lies before her and the greater things that wait to be attained. It contains plentiful hints on how to distiguish between the real, the false, and -most difficult of all- the faked lace. any of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
