The Technique of Bruges Flower Lace by Veronica Sorenson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Bruges is one of the oldest lacemaking centres in the world and is renowned for the intricate designs it has produced - all based on flowers, leaves and braids with a unique and characteristic scroll. It is a sectional bobbin lace, its patterns most dramatically worked in white, cream, ecru and black. 25 designs originally published in Dutch are supplemented here by 35 of Veronica Sorenson's own devising. Following the relevant technical information we move on to the patterns - these are divided into motifs, edgings, crosses, collars and cuffs, all-lace mats, pieces designed for specific use in the home and gift suggestions. For the lacemaker familiar with bobbin lacemaking techniques there is a wealth of new and interesting designs to be discovered; originality and versatility are the key features of Bruges flower lace, fully reflected in this book.
