An Excerpt:

''It is much easier to learn to make bobbin lace than it is to learn to knit or to crochet. Personal lessons are not at all necessary. Torchon is easiest for the beginner to manage and learned first. The tools and materials for making bobbin lace are few and inexpensive. They are the pillow, bobbings, pricker, pins, patterns, and thread.''
