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 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!
