"Here is a diagram for how a lace maker crosses one tape over another -- my diagram. All the laces in my previous comment are mine. The first is from a Bruges Bloomwork workshop. The others are my original designs."

"The one you call "Gros Point" is not true lace at all, and I would avoid using those words in referring to this piece. It is an embroidery with some dimensional elements reminiscent of gros point needle lace. The distinction is that if the…"

"Karen - Some comments on your examples. The lace in the red square is a machine lace, imitating bobbin lace. Look at the red line. Parallel to that are lines in the dense areas. That occurs in some machine laces, but not in handmade bobbin lace. In…"

Tineke Stoffels' "Little White Collars"

I recently found the work of a Dutch photographer and lace collector who spotlights her antique collar collection in a beautiful way: she photographs the collars worn by young women, and digitally finishes the pictures in the style of the Old Masters.  Her name is Tineke Stoffels, and I think her online exhibit will be of interest to lace-lovers here! Here's her exhibit on her website:…See More

Karen

Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. I also suggest that you join another online network that I administer, called needle lace talk. It is devoted entirely to needle laces, and has many highly skilled members who can help. It is also free to join.

http://needlelacetalk.ning.com

If you have questions about either site, contact me and I'll try to help.
