SUMMARY- All of the designs in this book were designed with rick rack intrinsically incorporated into the work - the company was, after all, in the business of selling trims like rick rack. The last two pages have a few token tatting patterns. This is the earliest book I have that pairs rick rack with tatting as of this writing. I found it in Australia, so my copy has crossed a great deal of water at least twice in its lifetime. It's a shame the publisher didn't see fit to credit the designers who put so much work into the ingenious designs presented in all three books, but that has been more the case than not with any thread/trim manufacturer. I will get a PDF made of it when I can find the time, and will update this page when I get it done. Below are some links to a few articles about the Narrow Fabric Company...
