Russian lace is a tape lace that uses a few pairs of bobbins. It is mostly done in cloth stitch with the pins close to the tape (two twists). Spaces between the tapes are filled with braids and leaves. The tape has a gimp running down the middle. It is twisted and the worker pair passes between the gimp.Idrija also has a cloth tape, but the pins are shared by other trails and so the thread is twisted 3-7 times around the pins. The trail winds around inside the figure and fills the whole shape. If there is a colored thread, it is worked in cloth stitch. The trail may also be worked in whole stitch like in the wings.
If you are looking for books on Tonder, you might try contacting the Australian lace guild. I have heard from our Australian members that their guilds do have a lending library. So if the out of print books are too expensive to buy, at least you can look at them through the library system.
I don't want you to leave the group, or to feel unwelcome. You are very welcome to participate. But our-of-focus photos are pointless. We will be happy to see any of your work that is in focus and clear.
I clearly stated these policies in the NOTE on PHOTOS, which I ask all our members to read.
I deleted your baby cap and bootees because the photo was too small to show us any detail of how it was made. I WANT to have photos of your lace for everyone to enjoy, but they must be in focus, and clear enough to show how they were made, or they are useless. And too much background uses up too much storage space.
Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. Post some photos of your lace. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
