The Art of NettingTHE ART OF NETTING, edited by Jules & Kaethe Kliot.
Netting is the technique of making a knotted mesh. This Lacis edition of THE ART OF NETTING is a reproduction of portions of several manuals printed at the turn-of-the-century when netting, along with the other needlework crafts, was at its height in terms of popularity.  The original titles of the publications which have contributed to this book are: Tatting and Netting from Metropolitan Art Series, c. 1895; Weldon's Practical Needlework, Vol. III, c.1890; The Young Ladies' Journal Complete Guide to the Work-Table, 2nd Ed. 1885; Needle Craft, May 1913; and Recueil De Plances De L'Encyclopedie Par Ordre De Matieres, 1783.   ISBN 0-916896-30-7. Publisher: Lacis. 112 pages, 8.5" x 11" softcover.  $18.00  #169131


Beautiful NettingBEAUTIFUL NETTING, Rita F. Bartholomew.
There are two methods used to tie the basic netting knot.  Either method can be used with heavier materials, but the method use to tie the knot in netting with string/twine is not as easy to use with the finer crochet or tatting threads.  This book only teaches the method that works well with the finer threads used in making laces.
Instructions for Diamond Mesh Netting, Square Mesh Netting and Circular Netting.  
Square Mesh Netting usually forms the background for net embroidery.  This type of netting is also seen in volleyball, and tennis nets.
Circular Netting is used to create doilies, shawls, and lace edgings.  This type of netting is used with both cloth centers and net centers. It is also used to make basketball nets, and shopping bags.
Also covered is how to attach netting to cloth.
Full instructions and 23 patterns are included in this self-published book.  60 pages, 8.5" x 11" spiral bound.  $20.00  #619100


Nets Through TimeNETS THROUGH TIME: The Technique and Art of Knotted Netting, Jacqueline Davidson.
Reflecting a devotion to this universal and timeless fabric and its infiltration into every aspect of civilization from fishing to sports to fine lace and creative expression.

This book is the culmination of years of research. It covers the entire history of nets from prehistoric sites to fiber art by contemporary artists.

Knotted netting was used to produce utilitarian nets for fishing, trapping, and carrying. The same technique was adapted for making lace of several styles and might, in fact, have been the earliest type of lace.

The book describes many items of knotted netting, and includes over forty black-and-white photographs. The tools used for all kinds of nets are also discussed and pictured. References and an Index are included.

The author, Jacqueline Davidson, was introduced to the technique of knotted netting while studying weaving at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine. She later taught knotted netting in other textile classes and published several magazine articles. She lives in Deer Isle with her husband Darwin, a commercial photographer.

ISBN 978-1-936447-34-3.  $19.95  #169454

Netting to Hold Your Hair and Other ThingsNETTING TO HOLD YOUR HAIR AND OTHER THINGS, Rita Bartholomew.
There are two ways to tie the basic netting knot.  This book teaches only the method that works well with the finer threads used in making lace; what Rita calls the Lacemaker Knot.
After learning the basic knot, the easiest way to practice it is by creating squares, rectangles, and circles with diamond-shape meshes, as described in the chapter, DIAMOND MESH NETTING.  CIRCULAR NETTING is used to create circles, squares and rectangles from the inside out - the center being formed first.  The hair covering and bag patterns in this book use these two types of netting.
Also covers attaching beads to netting.
Full instructions plus 12 patterns are included in this self-published book.  64 pages, 8.5" x 11" spiral bound.  $20.00  #619101
