Here is another lovely antique Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republication™! This antique Victorian to Edwardian Pillow Laces Instructional and Patterns is a rare item indeed! Darling, darling stuff for those who are interested in how this delicate art was preformed. Plus, there are clear, concise instructions, patterns and etchings included for those who actually have the talent to do this dainty lace work! (Original is NOT for sale)

 

Our new line of Spiral Bound Book Republications™ oh-so-conveniently lie flat while in use!

This is a unbelievably nice touch if you have every tried to read a pattern's instructions while your hands are full of your in progress project. As an avid needleworker myself my personal experience prompted my choice of spiral binding for it's ease-of-use alone. I bet you'll love it too!

 ''Great seller - very special patterns clearly marked. I am happy!''

 

It includes many projects which can be read about below. You can find the vintage and antique silk, cotton and linen threads on Atomic Mall to recreate the beautiful and unique pillow lace items! Just have to hunt a little bit! :^)

There are scores of lovely etchings demonstrating the construction, implements and embellishment techniques from the late 1880's to the turn of the 19th century. Scarce and intriguingly useful information jam-packed in and just waiting for your creative muse and touch!

An excerpt:

''Pillow lace may be regarded as an invention of the 16th century. Made in the first instance at Genoa, it spread rapidly throughout Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany and Sweden. Much later on, the work was introduced into Slavonic countries and South America; in recent years it has extended eastwards, notable to the Islands of Crete, Candia and Ceylon and to Madras in India.''
