I have been searching for an oya book for a while and it is either that they are unavailable, out of print or out of stock. my question to all our fine lacemakers out there is --- why not do your own digital book. I would be the first person to volunteer to digitize it as a free service.

It just seems so senseless that there are no patterns anywhere or books...

Several of the books listed among our resources for oya are available from Holly Van Sciver.  Dickson, Odian, Tashjian.

okey dokey...Im gonna search here for the book....

much thanks Lorelei

I learned knotted lace from the first Elena Dickson book, and then bought the 2nd book. Much the same beginners instructions in both books, but then they have different patterns - so between them there is Lots of lace to make!

I have since had an Advanced workshop with Elena which helped sort out a few problems I had,and took me on to some more difficult techniques (well, difficult to me!!!) but I was able to learn from scratch from her books very well.

I borrowed a different book from the library, but I must say I think the Dickson books are better for beginners. They stick to the simple beginners needs and don't go off at a tangent. Either book would get you well on the way to working excellent Knotted Lace.

I have found quite a few books available from Amazon Books, maybe you would like to try there.
