Sprang Lace Patterns Inspired by Dutch Sashes
Years ago, Carol James was inspired by a collection of 18th century Dutch sashes. The diverse assortment of sash designs ranged from geometric patterns to figurative designs, including triangles, diamonds, trees, people, mermaids, animals, and stars. Carol was immediately inspired to chart these patterns and make them available to the modern sprang lace braider, and the 2020 lock down provided the time.
While this is not a beginners book, it does provide 77 new lace patterns charted in full color using Carol's pattern notation and charts. The accompanying full color photos show the design details of each motif beautifully.
If the technique is new to you, I do have a few copies of Carol's DVD "Introduction to Sprang" that I can include with this book order, while supplies last. If you still have a DVD player and would like to have a copy, add a note to your order and I will send a copy free of charge. Alternatively, you may consider Carols' book "Sprang Unsprung" to learn the technique.
