Book cover

Chats on Old Lace and Needlework by Emily Leigh Lowes is an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in the history and techniques of lace-making and needlework. The author's passion and extensive knowledge on the subject shine through in each chapter, making this book a delight to read.

One aspect that immediately impressed me was the vast array of topics covered within the book. Lowes takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the evolution of lace and needlework, exploring various techniques and styles from different regions and time periods. From delicate Venetian lace to intricate Irish crochet, each chapter provides a well-researched and comprehensive overview.

What sets this book apart is Lowes' meticulous attention to detail. It is evident that she has conducted extensive research and firsthand observations to provide accurate and reliable information. The inclusion of detailed historical anecdotes and examples of exquisite lacework adds depth and context to the text, making it much more than a mere instructional guide.

Lowes also deserves praise for her writing style, which strikes a balance between being informative and engaging. While she covers technical aspects such as different stitches and patterns, she presents the information in a clear and accessible manner, making it accessible even to readers with limited knowledge of lace and needlework.

One aspect that could have been improved upon is the inclusion of more visual aids. While Lowes describes the different styles and techniques comprehensively, a few more illustrations or photographs would have greatly enhanced the reading experience. However, this minor limitation does not significantly detract from the book's value as a whole.

In conclusion, Chats on Old Lace and Needlework by Emily Leigh Lowes is an excellent resource for anyone interested in the art of lace-making and needlework. The author's extensive knowledge, passionate writing, and comprehensive coverage of the subject make this book a must-read for enthusiasts and historians alike. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, Chats on Old Lace and Needlework will inspire and educate with its rich content and engaging prose.
