NEEDLELACETALK

NEEDLELACETALK is a network I created on ning in February of 2010, for true needlelace.

http://needlelacetalk.ning.com

Needlelacetalk includes reticello, Pag, Turkish/Armenian oya, and puncetto, as well as traditional western European needle laces such as Alencon, point de gaze and gros point.

NEEDLELACETALK also has tutorials for beginners, and active groups for reticello and aemilia ars.

Margaret Ruhland, a member of needlelacetalk, has recently added a great many close up photos of antique needle laces in her collection.  Worth looking at:    http://needlelacetalk.ning.com/photo/album/listForOwner?screenName=10ruuhbhzdyhd 

Each of her albums is a different piece.

I posted a photo of most of the banner in my photos but I will take a photo of the banner at the county fair when I demonstrate there later in June.

Please post it among our PHOTOS. It will then be easier to find in the future. Lovely work.

Janice, that is just stunning!  I'd love to see a photo of the banner, and especially of this piece in sunlight.  I'll bet it really shines in the sun!

Loretta, it is 4 3/4 inches wide and 3 1/2 inches from the top of the head to the tail.  I used Madeira Metallis No.40 Astro 4, and DMC 80. Made it very quickly this week as I needed it to be sewn onto the banner yesterday at guild meeting.

Beautiful!  How large is it?  What fibers did you use?

This is a needlelace dragonfly I made to add to the Silvergate banner to be used at the San Diego County Fair this summer.
