Do you know Dover? They publish really cool books for artists and craftspeople. I found this beauty at the thrift store. It might still be in print.

For a contempory look at how Irish crochet, check out this Japanese blog

Wow! That is a stunner! I'm hoping that I can find that book at the library... I would love to find out more about Irish Crochet. It has a very unique appearance.
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I agree with you that working in a quilting shop will keep my paycheck intact, but only if I don't catch the quilting bug! Hehe...
