For those who love hand made lace.
from Louise Colgan, proficiency chair, IOLI
The IOLI Torchon Technical Journal is composed of a series of 23 exercises that cover a range of skills progressing from simple to more complex techniques. Patterns include a variety of edgings, insertions, corners; plus a bookmark, circular edging, and square mat. The final exercise asks candidates to choose a pattern from another source that showcases the skills they've learned by working through the Journal.
Here is a list of primary elements that are covered in these exercises:
Basic Bobbin Lace Stitches
Rose Ground - Several variations
Spiders - Multiple types
Woven shapes - Such as Diamonds, Triangles, Trails, Chevrons, Hearts Fans - Simple, Spanish, French Fans Gimp Tallies Leaves Plaited Headside Edge
