Information

Freehand Lace

Freehand bobbin laces are a group of peasant laces made in various countries in Europe.  What they have in common is that pins were only used along the 2 outer edges, and careful tension control made the threads follow their proper path.  Some of the localities for these laces are Sweden, northwestern Italy and southeastern France.  Scania, Queyras, Maurienne are some of the varieties.

Thank you for the photos of you freehand lace samples.  They are in exactly the right place.  Are the Queyras laces all more complex than the other?

Ok. As I told you, I have only made a few narrow samples of these laces, just to get an idea of how it is worked (you know, pins are only at the edges). So, tension is fundamental to get it nicely and regularly done. I have placed three of the samples in my album. Hope I did it in the right place.

We really shouldn't post any images from books (unless you wrote the book), because it is a copyright violation.  I know this is awkward, because we need illustrations.  But I would rather have photos of samples you may have made in class.  Or perhaps the next time you attend a lace meeting and see someone working freehand lace, ask their permission to photo and post what they are doing .

The copyright thing is serious.  If we don't respect copyright, ning will shut us down without appeal.  It's a legal issue.

Lorelei, I have books, with images. Is it possible to scan one or two examples?

We see very little freehand lace.  I would like to add some images or links in the box just under our logo.  If you have pictures, please post them to PHOTOS.  Then we can all find them easily in the future.  I would love to have pictures.  It would be especially nice if they are closeup enough that we can see the thread paths.

Hello Lorelei. I find this laces very interesting, and have taken a course last year with Marianne Stang. We made a few samples of different freehand laces, from different countries. They are narrow samples. So, don't really know if they could serve you. If so, please let me know.

Does anyone have a photo of one of these kinds of lace that you have made, that I can use as a logo for this group?
