"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…"

"What a pretty shawl! It looks to me like good quality machine-made lace. The detail photo makes this clear--in the solid areas, threads in one direction go over and under straight threads in the other direction. At a larger scale, this gives the…"

Nancy A. Neff replied to deborah greenfield's discussion Once Again on Chantilly Hand vs Machine made in the group Identification-History
"I don't know what all was covered in the previous discussion but I've been told that some Chantilly was made by machine making the net and fillings, and the gimp sewn in by hand (Leavers?). Could this explain your pieces?"

"I agree that this is early 18th C, could be as early as late 17th C but unlikely given the floral design. It could be either Milanese or Flemish--there are few non-cloth stitch design areas in the tapes, which to me indicates it's as likely to…"

"Hi Deborah,  Yes, sorry, I left a long comment and then immediately deleted it because I was wrong about one of the fillings and wanted to think more about it. I will go and leave a revised version since I'm not so sure it's…"

"Report on this publication: It is only 20 pages long, so it's 50 Euros per page. This, however, is counting front and back covers, pub info page, and table of contents, so it's more like 63 Euros per page of patterns. That said, it's…"

"Goldenberg 1904 says that "W. Felkin, in his history of lace manufacture, says that lace net was first made by machinery in 1768. Other authorities place the date as between 1758 and 1760." But you are right, Lorelei, that…"

New group on Facebook--for UFOs

Some of us have started a group on Facebook for those of us challenged by UFOs--UnFinished Objects. The group is the Craft UFOs Support Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1674307326156108/.  "Craft" in the name is our indication that craftsmen in all areas are welcome, although since it was started by lacemakers, there are mostly lacemakers in it right now. However, many lacemakers have already confessed to closets full of…

Welcome.  Nice to see you here.  All the policies and software are the same as needlelacetalk, except that this group includes a wider array of laces (basically anything handmade).  Let me know if you have questions.
