I will, thanks Elizabeth.  As a beginner I am so amazed at all the different types of lace.  I'm quite enjoying exploring all of the different methods to making lace.

Comment by Elizabeth Ligeti on April 23, 2015 at 9:04pm

Kim, check out Milanese lace, too.  That is a sort of tape/braid lace, - and has lots of different stitches to make decorative braids. Milanese is a very pretty lace. fancy stitches, and colour, too! Louise Colgan is the expert with this lace, and has made gorgeous coloured pieces.

Thanks very much Lorelei, the diagrams are very helpful.  I totally forgot about the tape laces group too, I'll have another look through those resources.

Kim - be sure to check out the resources in our BOBBIN TAPE LACES group. There are lots more.

gimp in a tape

Comment by Administrator on April 22, 2015 at 5:21pm

An openwork edge is common, but not universal.

In this case, turning stitch is done like this:

http://lynxlace.com/learningbobbinlace-basics.html#turningstitch

There is no exact number of passives. That is at the lace maker's discretion. A pin-after-2-threads (winkiepin) edge is most common, but a sewing edge (pin-after-4 threads) does occur.

Some times there is a gimp down the center.

The tape can also be made with no openwork at the edge, just solid cloth stitch all the way across. In that case turning stitch is done on the outer edge.

The tape can also be made with a doublestitch edge and half stitch throughout the body of the tape.

Red is tctc (or ctct).

Green is tc (or ct)

Thanks Elizabeth, wow lots of options.  

Comment by Elizabeth Ligeti on April 22, 2015 at 1:06am

Yes, as far as I know Tape or Braid lace is mainly worked with cloth stitch, with cloth & twist on theedges, or with other varieations.  I am not a Braid Lace worker, - I have only done a few pieces, but cloth stitch was the main stitch.

Like all laces - it has variations - the Russian Braid lace has a gimp usually down the centre, and some braids have divisions (twisted workers) down the centre, etc. Like all laces - there is the plain version, and variegated versions!!!!!!!!!

I'm interested in trying Russian Tape Lace.  I'm just a beginner, so I was wondering, what is the typical stitch used for the tape?  Is it only cloth/half or whole stitch or a combination of these?

The Lace Day down in Lafayette, Indiana took place on Saturday.  I was going, but ended up, last minute, with a health issue and couldn't go.  I had my friends take pictures and even the building it was in was gorgeous!  I will put some pictures in a folder.  Now I am even more upset that I didn't get to go.
