Donate now to support the Antique Pattern Library project to pay for such things as database and website development, web hosting costs, data entry, scanning equipment, and help us meet the public funding ratio, which allows us to keep our nonprofit status, making your donations tax-deductible, depending on where you live and on the local tax laws and tax treaties.
If you can’t afford to give anything, which also happens in these difficult times, introducing the Library to people who don’t know of it yet, is very useful, since it broadens our user base and therefore also our donor base.

L-ML001 Adele Voshage – Das Spitzenklöppeln
Bobbin lacemaking – Manual with 34 patterns to thoroughly learn bobbin lacemaking by Adele Voshage, with 84 illustrations, 3rd enlarged edition. Leipzig, Eugen Twietmeijer.
Although the text is in fraktur script and probably not an easy read (as well as German) the illustrations are fabulous, in clear black and white the lace pattern, and an engraving of the resulting lace. This edition is the third, indicating that the book must have sold well at the time. And with every new edition new patterns were added. No separate pattern sheets, but with copy-paste-print that shouldn’t be a big problem. Some nice illustrations of antique lacemaking tools as well.
