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.

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.

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.

Thanks for that link. Looks like a good method. I have tried weaving in the ends with a needle. But that has to be done after the lace is off the pillow, and causes some distortion. Her method avoids the distortion. I also noticed that she took the weaver on a very complicated path, to be sure friction would hold it securely, I suppose.

I have found a great video where the lady weaves in her ends, it makes such a clean closing, it is in russian, but she shows it well, and you do not have to speak russian. https://youtu.be/GHZcsqn4SiM

I now have 2 basic lessons on tape lace for beginners, on my website -- 

http://lynxlace.com/learningbobbinlace-tapelacemat.html

http://lynxlace.com/learningbobbinlace-tapelesson-47.html 

The first is a small mat that I designed. It contains the 3 most common joinings. It has turning stitch, estimating pinholes, sewings, double braids, and false braids.

The 2nd is a simplified version of one of the DMC patterns. It only has sewings and turning stitch.

Wow, those collars are something else.  Such beautiful and even picots!  I'm really impressed by the two that have a geometric design (#4 in the series and #10).  That's some tight, even plait work.
