Barbour: The Imperial Macrame Lace Book

with Numerous Illustrations and Instructions

Spiral Bound Book Republication™

Originally published 1878!


Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republication™ of the original ''Barbour: The Imperial Macrame Lace Book'' with numerous illustrations and instructions!'' This book was originally published in 1878! (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!


*** Producing the best CD & Spiral Bound Book Republications for you since 1999! ***


Our customers say:

 ''Beautiful patterns love it received immediately great seller AAAAA+++++''

 ''Wonderful !! Exceeded my expectations !!''


  This HISTORIC item contains 19 steel plate etchings or engravings of wondrous macram? lace patterns with clear instructions, designs and fundamentals for creating delicately beautiful, dainty lace! It even addresses, in very fine detail, the historic background of this art!


An excerpt:

''The new, beautiful and useful occupation and pastime of the American ladies can be easily learned, many ladies having mastered it from our book of instructions only. All that is necessary is a Cushion 18 inches long by 10 wide, some pins 2 or 2 1/2  inches long, and...flax threads... ''


''Uses of Macram?. Many useful articles can be made in Macram? work, such as table and mantel borders, brackets, fringes for household linen and towels, nightdress cases, handkerchief sachets, wall pockets, tidies, work-bags, shopping-baskets, cosies, insertions for antimacassars, and fringes for dress-trimmings.''


Now I am certain the creative fiber and thread artists out there can visualize and conceive many, many creative uses for this art in our modern-day world way beyond the cultural confines of those when this item was created. I could see this art being useful with curtain and clothing embellishments, wall hangings, bed and bath linens, table covers and runners, baby items and gifts galore for the quickly upcoming holiday season!

I guess I am a product of the times as I never thought of macram? beyond the plant and wall hangings of the 70's which were made with stout cords, heavy twines and wooden beads. Now this antique information has changed my perspective in that the items made are constructed of our equivalent of fine to coarse crochet weight types of threads but of linen, not cotton. I imagine when I begin to play with this I will use some of my size G and up vintage and antique silk threads. I might even get to the point where I will experiment with antique glass seed beads in the project just because I could… :^) There is a great deal more latitude with this fiber art then I ever imagined!

FYI: The antique, vintage and contemporary silk, linen and cotton thread and other materials are available on Atomic Mall (or at your local hobby or fabric store for contemporary materials)! You just have to hunt a little bit! :^)
