Needle Lace

True needlelace is made only with needle and thread, on a temporary backing.

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.

For those who want to see Pag lace done, go to Yuotube & type in "Pag Lace" into the search box. There are 1-2 videos of it being done plus other related stuff.

Hello everyone. I belong to Needlelace Talk & came across needlelace here too. So here I am! Love looking at it all!

I have seen the Pag lace on the videos, and it is certainly spectacular. It is a pity there are no books on how to make it.

Hopefully someone will know how, and put up some help/lessons here so we can have a go!

Pag lace class at OIDFA in Slovenia 2016.  This note was posted on the arachne newsgroup today:

"I understand that it is hoped to offer Pag lace as the needlelace class at
OIDFA in Slovenia in 2016.
I have also heard that there is a reluctance in Pag to teach outsiders their
special lace. This could be why there are no "how to" books available.
I did a lace tour of Slovenia this year prior to Caen OIDFA and it was
amazing. The OIDFA Congress in Slovenia is a not to be missed event! Their
lace is beautiful and their county amazing. Their people so generous and
friendly and the organised events were so professional.

Annette in a cool Wollongong, Australia."

It would be wonderful if some of our members attend, take the class, take really good notes, and report back.  Hallelejah!

Pag lace appears to be similar in style to reticello needlelace (not the cutwork embroidery called reticello).

Mariana Brankina has just written a short course on Kene -- Bulgarian needlepoint lace, and published it on needlelacetalk.

Kene is similar to oya/Armenian/Mediterranean needle lace, and uses the same knot.

We recently had some new modern gros point photos posted on needlelacetalk:

For those who might want to see close-up photos of laces that show design elements and stitch details:  earlier this afternoon, I posted three photos of an antique edging of Point d'Angleterre lace in my collection. 

Point d'Angleterre is a Brussels mixed lace, meaning it has both bobbin-lace and needle-lace elements in one piece.  The second and third photos in the set show lots of stitches, and some wonderful design details, quite clearly. 

I'm slowly photographing all my antique laces and antique fans.  I love digital photography for the ease of taking close-ups, though I initially wasted many hours finding out the hard way how USEFUL a tripod is!   I'm sure I'm not the only lace-maker who uses good close-ups to influence and improve my lace-making and lace designing -- this is half the reason I keep collecting the antiques.

Enjoy!
