Bedfordshire lace patterns from the Rose Family Sample Book
by Rieko Tamura. Published October 2011.
All profits from the sale to go to The Japanese Red Cross Society.
A4, soft cover 32 pages.
Contains 30 edge patterns taken from the CD of the Rose Family Sample Book put out by The Lace Guild, UK.
Each page contains a pricking, a worked sample, and a very clear diagram, as per sample page pictured above. The diagrams are particularly clear, showing thread paths for crossings of trails, etc. Patterns range for a slim, simple edge worked with only 15 pairs, to ones like the one pictured above using 31 to 35 pairs.
This book would be an excellent addition to any lacemaker’s library
My copy purchased from Roseground Supplies in the UK.
