The key difference between Maltese lace and Bedfordshire is the inclusion of the iconic Maltese Cross in many of the designs.
Focusing firstly on the history of the lace, this book goes on to take you through different patterns to learn the techniques.
Consiglia has also produced a book of historical lace patterns by Dun Guzepp Diacono and the book that this is a supplement to.
