Postcard Reviews November 2020
Getting creative with lace is what this book is all about.
There are 30 projects using lace, whether that be handmade, shop bought, vintage or scraps.
The designs of each project in this book are both unusual and unique. I love the quirkiness that is incorporated in the projects and I think this adds to their beauty.
It is well worth reading this book beofre you dive into any of the projects. There is a lot of information and the illustrations do help with the understanding of working with lace and lace making in general.
There are templates included, and I just reading the stories about lace that is littered throughout the book.
This interesting book is quite appealing, and whatever you think about lace in general be prepared to have a change of thought.

Beautifully, profusely, and effectively illustrated throughout, Lace Reimagined: 30 Inspiring Projects for Making and Using Lace Creatively is an extraordinary and thoroughly ‘user friendly’ instructional guide for novice beginners and holds great and enduring value for even the more experienced lace maker and needle crafter. While very highly recommended for personal, professional, and community needlecraft collections, it should be noted for personal reading and reference lists that “Lace Reimagined: 30 Inspiring Projects for Making and Using Lace Creatively” is also readily available in a digital book format.
