"Arzhela, good morning. I wander if Argentia silk is worked double or single thread. I have also another question...when we work the stalk, how many wraps are made between the half knots in order to secure threads? Thanks Carolina de la Guardia"

"The EB logo is not Hinojosa lace...it is Milanese lace. The stitches used are usual in Milanese but not in Hinojosa, and the pins are not evenly put. Inside curves the pins are close together. This is a characteristic of Milanese. In Hinojosa, the…"

"No, they are not the same thing. If you watch the videos they show the way of doing two different stitches, Piñon stitch we could translate as kernel stitch as for the shape, and the other is a variant of lleruza stitch. This last is used to…"

"As far as I know, it seems to me late 16th or early 17th.cent, I have seen before, here in Spain, these little metal discs inserted into lace, and were dated 16th cent. I find this lace very interesting because it is halfway between lace and…"

I to thank you and the other's for opening up a discussion on Hinojosa lace.  I went to your site and saw the books, but am still undecided as to which one I should get first as a beginner.  I didn't do a lot of searching yet, but I don't remember seeing prices listed either.  I was in a hurry.  I don't know where you are in comparison to Roseground, but I'm wondering about the S&H on books from you.  I've ordered from Roseground before and didn't fine the S&H that bad.  I'm hoping you can help me out here.  By the way, a nice site you have...!

Your explanation about Hinojosa and your booklets was very interesting and very useful. I think your idea about opening a discussion is a good one. I am going to start a DISCUSSION in the BOBBIN TAPE LACE group. Perhaps it will help clarify  things.

Today I received an email from Joy McKenzie who is asking about "kernel stitch" used in Hinojsa (I believe). I have one of your booklets on that style, but that particular stitch does not appear among the few named stitches in your book. (SPANISH BRAID LACE "WITCHSTITCH". I am hoping there is a larger repertory of stitches, including this one she is trying to find out about.  Can you tell me how it is made, or do any of your laces posted here contain that stitch?

Thank you Carolina.    I made a copy of your picture of the EB, so I can make my own from that.  I will look forward to making it.  It's been awhile since I made lace and this will be good to begin again.   I love your lace photo's.  You do wonderful work.

Thanks again,

Ellie

Hola Carolina,

ya he añadido mi primera foto, se trata del árbol de navidad que he diseñado para este año.  La Dolors ha creado otro diseño, para el mismo árbol, cuando tanga la foto la colgaré.

Encantada de saludarte. Por cierto ya he empezado a manejar el programa Lace8 a partir de los tutoriales que hay en youtube de Jenny Brandis. Cuando nos veamos ya te diré como me va.
