SUMMARY- You get 18 crochet edgings, four of which are filet church laces, then you get five laces that simulate tatting, but are crochet. They aren't actual cro-tat patterns. I really love the altar lace that employs what they call "shadow filet". It gives the figures worked in the cloth a dimensional effect that really catches the eye...
