This original and exciting guide to lace is a visual feast of inspiring step-by-step projects and galleries; it includes in-depth features relating to the history of lace; it will encourage you to experiment, inspire you with handy tips, and provide sources for further inspiration.

Typically associated with frilly hankies and flouncy collars that are time-consuming to make and invariably white, the 30 projects in this book span the colour spectrum and range from those that can be made in an afternoon to those that are more involved.

This original and exciting guide to lace is a visual feast of inspiring step-by-step projects and galleries; it includes in-depth features and fascinating asides relating to the history of lace; it will encourage you to experiment, inspire you with handy tips, and provide sources for further inspiration. Projects include using needle lace, needle weaving and drawn-thread work on fabric, paper, and in conjunction with found items. Some projects feature techniques such as using self-hardening clay and papier mache; some feature ready-made lace, either entirely, or as something that can be added to.

A practical exploration of lace and how to use it

Packed full of inspiring projects and some basic lace-making techniques for beginners

A unique book on a trendy subject, for textile artists, fashion designers and embroiderers

Elizabeth Healey originally trained as a graphic designer at the London College of Printing, after which she worked in various design groups before defecting to the world of illustrated books. For as long as she can remember she has made things - usually with yarn or cloth, but sometimes with paper and clay. She is particularly interested in utility stitching and tries to use recycled textiles wherever possible, in a way that looks fresh, modern and urban rather than old and fusty. Elizabeth has contributed articles to the following magazines:
Knitting, Making, Crafty, Felt Matters and Pretty Patches. Her first book, Stitch, Fabric & Thread, was published in 2016.

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.
It’s amazing….

The complete table of contents listed below. While I didn’t try any of the techniques or projects, they are meticulously laid out with clearly illustrated, step-by-step instructions that include large color photos and diagrams. Dotted throughout are lace anecdotes, quotes and tips. Will give you the confidence to work with lace.


Midwest Book Review - Jan 2021

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.
