Elizabeth Hiddleson's fabulous thread crochet designs!

Mrs. Hiddleson designed beautiful thread doilies, tablecloths, motifs, chair sets, filet pieces, etc. during a large part of her life. We're fortunate that she decided to publish her patterns. They were available through mail order; if you have some earlier Workbasket magazines you will undoubtedly recognize one of her leaflets advertised in it! Her directions may not be for the faint-hearted crocheter, since she wrote them during a time when many crocheters were expected to "read between the lines" but don't let that put you off trying them! All patterns are accompanied by good sharp black and white photos with close-ups of the work when she thought it would be useful; the filet pieces are not charted but worked from the actual piece. Most of her designs were done in size 20 or size 30 thread, but of course any size thread can be used - the finished size will vary. All of the volumes have a basic crochet tutorial and sometimes instructions on special techniques such as hairpin lace. Any special techniques in the patterns will be noted if I see them.
