Has anyone heard the use of the term fullwork to refer to cloth work or horizontal work in bobbin lace?

Nope, that is a new one on me. Where did you hear it?

Cathy Belleville used it in her beginning bobbin lace curriculum when she taught at The Lace Museum.

I heard the Dutch origin of the word used in grid-based laces like Torchon.

Is it possible that "fullwork" is a translation of the meaning of the word in a language other than English?

Danish lærredsslag means "canvas" (according to google)

French "point toile" or "point ferme"

Dutch "linnenslag" Well, that one is obvious.

Do you know where Cathy Belleville learned bobbin lace? What country?

Jo's explanation is significant, I think.

Actually, I first learned to make bobbin lace in Holland and I never heard that term or anything like it.
