Thread and Pricking: A Partnership

£19.99

Product description

Hardback illustrated boards, 1998 Verlag Martina Wolter-Kampmann / Wickede
Condition: like new, but has small label on front paste down which has previous owners details printed on, and the obliterated (neatly) by black felt pen.
Lacemakers need to know the actual size, the diameter, of their thread so that the space given by the pricking pattern can be well filled. The author explains her new method of determining the size of the commonly available yarns used for bobbin lace, and presents comparative tables of the variety of threads. Also included are some common grids, with the thread sizes that suit them best. This is the English translation of the second expanded German edition of the originally Dutch publication. The Dutch version was the author's dissertation written in April 1989 for the finals of her three year course at the Kantcentrum Brugge for the qualification of Monitrice (qualified teacher of bobbin lacemaking).

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
