Withof

Withof Duchesse bobbin lace is a 20th century invention, derived from Sluis Duchesse (Dutch duchesse).  The major innovation is the use of a raised bundle of threads to outline virtually every part of every motif.  Sister Judith of Etten-Leur, the Netherlands and her students created this new form.

Your work is beautiful Arzhela LE MAITRE. Certainly for first tries in Withof-Duchesse lace. There are only minor bits that need improving. The more practice the better it will be. Happy lace making.

Hello,, Here you have two photos (one is not so good... sorry) with my first step with Withof. For me it's the best I did with polychrome, but when I see the works of my teacher, I feel very little. It's so marvellous.

Lorelei, I am now on vacation down in Florida, so after I get home, I will check my book('s) out and see what it is I have and get back to you then.  Thank you very much.

Riet and Arzhela - I am so glad we have such experienced lace makers as yourselves among our members. Do we have photos of your Withof laces? I hope  Barbara can get help from you both.

Barbara - I could scan all my notes and diagrams for you, but only if you really want to make either of the laces in my photos below. Let me know.

In ferbruary two Japanese ladies came to me for Withof-Duchesse lessons. First I was a little scared because both ladies were very Well experienced in other lace techniques. But I was thrilled to be able to teach them so many magical trics. It is true that you need to think differently while making this type of lace. Constantly tninking of solutions to the puzzle on your pillow. They were so happy for there were many Eureca moments. Next year I will see them again. May be I can be of use during the coming IOLI Convention for Withof-Duchesse lovers.

After 25 years of Bayeux, Chantilly and Polychrome de Courseulle lace, I started Withof here in Spain with Pilar Montanos. It's a mad project. because it's so different of laces I've done until this day. But it's so marvellous starting new and so diferent thing and discover how to make better and better all. For me and what I know it's one of more difficult lace we can learn.

So enjoy it so much and post your works just for our enjoy!

I have only done 2 Withof pieces myself, from workshops with Jeannette Van Ord. I took really careful notes and made lots of diagrams. Withof requires a really different kind of thinking because any part that will be surrounded with a bundle, well, the bundle has to be made first. So you have to plan where to start while thinking about which parts will be bundled. It is kind of upside down and inside out thinking. These are my only pieces -
