Information

Bobbin made tape laces (braid laces)

Varieties of this kind include Russian tape lace, Schneeberger lace, Idrija lace, Lepoglava, Hinojosa and Milanese.  These laces are popular today particularly in Italy, Spain, and Russia.  They go back to the mid 1500s in Italy and Flanders.  Milanese tape lace is more complex and adds fancy decorative stitches and holes into the tape itself.  Hinojosa, dating from at least the late 19th c through the 20th c, is from the south west of Spain and relies on changing the stitch used to allow the tape to expand and contract in width.

Lars,

In Schneeberger, you need to study the pricking before you start the  lace.  As you progress in the tape, when you reach an area that has leaves, you hang in two pairs of bobbins to complete the leaf or leaves. If there is another leaf, close to the other side of the tape, you can carry the two extra pairs across the back of the tape, then use them to complete the next leaf.  When you have completed those leaves, you can tie off the two pairs.  Try to plan to tie of the pairs behind cloth or linen stitch.  

If this doesn't help enough, I could email you a diagram.

Lars,

As Sylvie says, please post a photo of the pattern, just the part you have a question about. Perhaps we can figure it out for you.

Some interesting photos of Vologda laces, including several shots of the fancy grounding stitches used.

Good news! The Bridget M Cook and Metka Tratnik book Idrija Lace has been reprinted!  It's been out of print for a while, and used copies on Amazon have been running about $350 USD.  I just received my copy, which was £31.50 (about $46).  See this page for ordering information: www.bridgetmcook.uk

This youtube video was posted on facebook today. The 1st part is just views of the city, but the last 2/3 is photos of Spanish tape laces. Very interesting, for those who love tape lace.

Good idea. Show us pictures of the result, really close up.

Comment by Deb Black on June 24, 2015 at 3:02pm
I am going to try this method, and see how secure it is, then I will report back the results. I liked that she was simply weaving over and under . Thank you.
