This booklet has been reviewed by lace gumnuts
Available direct from The Lace Guild (you don’t have to be a member to purchase from them), or from many mail order lace equipment suppliers.
It contains all instructions for getting started, with 4 patterns each fully documented, plus a fifth pattern to experiment with yourself. It includes clear diagram for the braids used in the patterns (8 different braids in all).
Like all the UK Lace Guild Booklets, a wonderful starter.
