For those who love hand made lace.
On this page post any links to things of general interest, that don't fit into one of the groups.
Yes it is. The masks are modern in style but with the lace technique of camariñas. The other link I have not been able to see it, the page gives me an error.
Are you saying that these headdresses bear no relationship to antique head coverings? Are these then entirely modern in style?
About the masks, they are a unique collection of a haute couture designer who made for the Camariñas lace museum.
Here are some photos of spectacular headdresses.
Lacemakers are endlessly creative, possibly even outrageously inventive, turning crisis into opportunity.
This photo belongs right next to the corona virus tape lace pattern posted on facebook.

An old coiffe, with embroidered net lace, needlerun, I think.
An amazing piece.

Photos from a Spanish lace day. Mostly torchon with some Cluny type, and some tape lace. I am always surprised that these lace events in Spain attract a few hundred lace makers. Here, a full house is about 25.
An interesting video showing the old have processes from linen stems to woven cloth (warped weighted loom).

Two people making bobbin lace with rope. Really fun to see.
Watch a bird sewing leaves together to make a bag for her chicks.
Here is a video, Russian language, of a gray haired lacemker doing traditional Russian tape lace, with her computer screen up and running while she illustrates different designs. This is for those who think all us old ladies with antequated hobbies are idiots adverse to technology.
This one, same 2 ladies, but photos of portraits of people wearing lace.
Krusheva Кружева I think means "bobbin lace" or just "lace"
a 36 minute video on youtube showing a Russian museum lace collection. At 18 min 48 sec are some tape laces made in real silver thread. I haven't watched the whole thing, but I think it worthwhile.
Some beautiful and very interesting photos in this album. Unusually good modern designs, some antique pieces with good detail photos, many examples of lace used in clothing, with unusual ideas about how to connect lace to clothing, drape it across, design skirts, all sorts of stuff.
These aren't exactly lace. They are crochet sculptures of female forms, in very realistic poses.
Holly Van Sciver has a lot. Google her at Van Sciver Bobbin Lace. Also Laurie Waters has collected links to suppliers, sorted by country (for shipping issues). https://www.pinterest.com/LaceNews/ ; Look about 80% down the page to the S's, for SUPPLIERS.
