Intermediate Skills in Bucks Point Lace

with Jean Leader


Jean Leader is a lacemaker, designer and teacher with experience in a wide range of laces although her personal favorites are Bucks Point and Bedfordshire. She lives in Glasgow, Scotland and has taught classes in Britain, Denmark and the USA. Her work has been exhibited in Britain and at international lace festivals in Europe. She contributes articles and patterns to magazines, has published four books and made a video on Color in Torchon.

This is an intermediate level program and you are expected to have already covered the basic Bucks Point techniques although these are reviewed where they occur in the patterns. The first pattern is for a handkerchief edging and next comes a pattern for this edging with a cucumber footside. The other patterns are for a bookmark, a hexagonal motif and a small medallion with a butterfly and flowers. An additional pattern for a wider handkerchief edging is also included. New techniques introduced are explained step by step and include tallies in point and honeycomb ground, a corner where pairs have to be added and later removed, mayflower in honeycomb, cucumber footside, starting and finishing a bookmark, gimp fingers, working a hexagonal motif, holes in cloth stitch, and ‘bundling’ pairs at the headside.
