The problem is well known: whenever you finish your lace (e.g. a mat) you have got a lot of thread ends to cut or make knots with. And to be sure, too many knots will not enhance the elegance of your lace!

Ulrike Löhr’s aim is to show how you can plan the disposal of your thread ends even before beginning the lace. Searching for the best and most beautiful result, very often implies a deviation from the traditional ways, or may even lead to absolutely new solutions. In 9 chapters she explains the most appropriate measures for beginning and ending lace projects in various techniques: Tape Lace, Torchon, Flanders Lace, Binche, Point Ground Lace, Mechlin, Valenciennes, Point de Paris, Braid Lace.

An indispensable book for all lacemakers, experts as well as beginners!
