I have a request: some help with translation of a Dutch text. I have a book by Jan Geelen on Rosaline bobbin lace. For most of the book I can just follow the diagrams. But the very beginning has a…Continue

"It looks to me like all the fillings in the second one are bobbin lace. If you want to post closeups of each that you thought might be needlelace, I'll give the stitch sequence that would produce that filling."

"Carolina is right:  twist twice the two pairs coming in, do a half-reef knot with the inside bobbins of each pair, then twist twice with the outside pairs. The only thing I disagree with is that I think there are two twists in the vertical…"

"Yes. And honeycomb units and a small diamond in cloth stitch are interchangeable, in structural terms. Another solution would be, moving from right to left -- point ground, cloth diamond, honeycomb unit, cloth diamond, point ground."

"Lorelei I am not speaking of half stitch but a half knot or maybe you call it a half reef knot. This is what it is curious and different. As Devon says probably to imitate needlelace. The two inners bobbins (threads) are half knotted, then one twist…"

"I think that what Carolina is suggesting is a pinchain (used in Bucks). You do a stack of half stitches, with an extra twist between each cross. ctt ctt ctt  But your photo doesn't look like that. I will try to find an example."

Laura Sandison commented on Lorelei Halley Administrator's group Identification-History
"My thought is bobbin lace for sure. The tape is worked as a cloth tape, but with an interesting compensation at the inner curves. Rather than dropping one pair at a time, there are several that are picked up when the tape comes around. Inner…"

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY 

I am resolving to finish 2 projects I have set up. One is a Binche learning piece, which is quite difficult for me. I am intimidated by it. The 2nd is a floral Bucks which I intend to decorate a purse. (Enlarged and worked in thick thread so it will hold up to use) This one also intimidates me. I have been using my cat as an excuse, but he has calmed down.  I keep on thinking of simple projects that won't take a lot of…

Thank you for welcoming me to the group. This artifact, which was identified in the report as a bobbin, looked odd to me and I questioned whether it was actually a bobbin.  I did some additional research and it turns out to be a circa 1880-1900 bone sewing stiletto/awl.  It was found in Baltimore.  Thank you anyway and if we do find any bobbins, I will get back in touch.

Thanks for the intro. As I'm new to this I've always wanted to try bobbin lace, tried it. Did something wrong cause I ended up with a big knot so I just put it away. Now i see that bobbin lace has come back and with the marvels of technology I feel it is going to be much easier to learn.

Thanks, Lorelei, 

I was already on needlelacetalk, and didn't realize I wasn't fully subscribed to the entire site. I'm sad to see the end of the Guild of Needle Laces,  but hope something similar will take its place.

Hello Lorelei,

Thank you for accepting me onto the group. I'm just making a home made bolster pillow so I can start practicing and have been reading up as much as I can on the basics. I will read the posts suggested.

Again, thanks for having me.

Hi, Lorelei. It's a pleasure to say Hello. I feel very fortunate to find the page is still here. I'm going to be in touch more frecuently. I hope you are very fine.

Dear Lorelei, 

Thank you so much for accepting me as this group. My English is not very good. Thank you so much for the Turkish message you sent me. You are a very kind person :)

I want to learn, develop and teach this art unknown to my country. I hope I can.

If I can learn to learn and develop and teach others, I would like to invite you as my teacher already to join my exhibition :)

Thank you for having me here. Actually, I found your site while I was researching a small sample of genuine antique Irish Crochet I was able to purchase over the weekend. I will post photos and the story of how I came across this piece later, I have to leave the house shortly. I have just begun learning the Irish technique, I have 2 motifs from the book Irish Crochet Lace Motifs Collected And Described By Eithne D'Arcy. I need to get them posted at Ravelry and here; I am almost finished replacing the difficult edging on a 9 Ring Flower from Ms D'Arcy's book. My ambition is to produce a finished jacket, but I am very much just getting started.

It is an honor to be a part of this group, and I am excited to participate. I hope you are having a wonderful start to your week
