It's here! The Shetland Guild of Spinners, Knitters, Weavers, and Dyers has launched a new book, A Legacy of Shetland Lace, published by the Shetland Times Ltd. The book's twenty-one lace knitting projects, designed by members of the guild, are accompanied by each designer's bio to help us learn more about this interesting group of artisans.

The launch took place, as described in an earlier Spinner's Connection post, at Shetland Wool Week in October. Hazel Tindall, who has two designs in the book, shared a few photos of a display featuring the lace pieces that appear in the book. The photos are by Alan Raistrick, a member of the Oxford Guild of Spinners, Weavers, and Dyers who visited the Shetland Isles on holiday.
A Legacy of Shetland Lace can be ordered from the Shetland Times shop.
