Do I call it Needlerun/Limerick or just Embroidered Net? 2 Replies

Please have a look at my wedding veil album.  I called that lace needlerun because that's pretty much what I did - run the needle through the meshes until I had created the design I wanted.  I have…Continue

Hello. We have several members interested in tulle embroidery, but we have not seen any activity in this area. Those of you who are interested -- please post photos of work you have done, so we can admire it. If you are just beginning, show us photos of your samplers or doodle pieces. Even watching your learning process is interesting.

Have you worked out a way to start the work? Do you put a paper pattern behind the net so you can see the pattern? Or do you work freehand?

Thanks for the link. Very good photos. Interesting to see how she sets up the work. She bastes the net onto thick brown paper (which presumably has the design drawn on it).  What I've seen more often in photos on the internet is the net held in a very large frame, either round or rectangular wooden slats.  It looks to me like they start by basting around the edges of the motifs, and this transfers the design to the net. Once the motif outlines are basted onto the net, the paper can be removed. Although some seem to keep it throughout. What method have you been using so far?

I have a question for you guys, how do you fallow the design for tambour? do we trace it onto the tulle? do we use tare-away stabilizer? I've seen a few videos online and ladies seems to just do it free-hand but there's no way I can get any symmetry free styling it.

Thank you. I found the magnifier!!

Yes, Limerick - needle run, not tamboured. I think.  Simply gorgeous.

Hmmm!  I Must find time (Ha ha!) to go back to Limerick, - and even try tambour. I have a hook, - have had it for  about 5 or 6 years, but not used it yet!!

To get a full size photo click on this. https://picasaweb.google.com/113353148419824047546/MisTrabajos20132...   Then look for the magnifier symbol just above the photo, to enlarge the image. I think it is needlerun on machine net.

Selena, Withof is a style of bobbin lace that was invented in the late 20th century. It is a part lace, like Honiton or Duchesse, and it characterized by using mostly cloth stitch, and has a bundle of threads outlining most parts of the lace.  Look here for examples.

What a gorgeous piece.  Either Limerick or Tambour I would think, - but no close-up to see which one.  It looks "worked" not applique so not Carrickmacross. It is a lovely design.

Very nice, is this Withof lace, I like the detail.
