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.

Refer to Ayrshire Needlework by Agnes F. Bryson  Batsford 1989

In chapter 11 Materials, tools, stitches and hints, pages 82-84 have detailed instructions ans diagrams for Foundation eyelets for needlepoint fillings.

Hi Florence, I was going to suggest looking at Hedebo. Someone else may be able to provide you with a name.

Looking at the photo close up, it could possibly be worked in two stages, from the outside in. A buttonhole stitch that has been worked into the edge of the circle, then whipped at least once, ( maybe more) for strength. On the second round there are 8 larger loops into which more buttonhole stitches are worked in decreasing amounts as the center is approached. The final row may be whipped as well, connecting to a pre-worked buttonhole ring placed in the very center. As the connection takes place, whip back up the connection to the final  row of buttonhole stitches and repeat.

This is only my interpretation of how it is worked. Someone else may have other ideas.

Hello all~ I am currently studying Ayrshire embroidery and have come across these wheel fillings that seem to show up in earlier examples, being a needle lace filling I thought I would ask you guys how they are made or what they are called. I have looked at Hedebo fillings as well but to no luck I could not find these. I have the book The A-Z of Whitework and the embroidery is discussed but these wheels are not featured. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!!

Congratulations Janice. Gosh! that looks like a Very Yummy slice on the plate!! I hope you will bring it to Texas for Convention, so we can see it 'for real'.

You are SO clever at thinking up original ideas, and then putting them in to practice.

Whatever next?!!!!!!!!  :)   

See you soon!!!  Is there going to be anArachne lunch this year?

It looks to me like puncetto, and Italian needle lace worked in the hand. Look at this album of puncetto photos.

My slice of cherry pie won a First at the San Diego County Fair this week.  It was also a clue in the kids scavenger hunt, so I wonder how many people will find it during the month of the fair.

Hello, Can need information on this lace insert.  Not sure if it is crochet or needlelace.  Any information would be appreciated.  Thank you.  Maria
