Cluny, LePuy and Continental Guipure

Information

Cluny, LePuy and Continental Guipure

This group is for Cluny, LePuy and continental guipure bobbin laces -- straight laces with a 4 strand braid/plait ground.  Designs may be geometric (Cluny) or floral (continental guipure).  Cluny designs often have a snaky clothwork trail meandering through the design. This trail uses the "passée a cheval" method, not the same as the Bedfordshire method.  LePuy designs usually have a cloth trail, but it is worked somewhat differently from either Beds or Cluny.  LePuy designs often have some very complex braided/plaited grounds. This group also includes Danish guipure lace, which are usually floral.

Actually, I have thought about working a Bobbin lace pattern in Tatting, - and am mulling over a needlelace piece in tatting, too.  (Reticella).

The Cluny de Brioude book, has a couple of patterns that might convert, with a bit of imagination!! - to tatting.  It is on my "Do do - one day" list!!!

Very very nice. It would be a good idea to make 2 interpretation of cluny patterns, one in lace and another in tatted.........

They are not perfect, but I certainly recommend using a box frame to make them.  I used my roller bobbin lace pillow, with berry pins set up on top of the roller, and then just held the bead in my left hand and the shuttle weaving was done with my right hand. I make bobbin lace tallies like that, so it was easy with just turning my left hand over the other way (palm up) for these Cluny leaves.

I got a cramp in my hand, weaving the threads around my fingers, so will always use the box version!!

Those are beautiful. I made one Cluny leaf, once. I couldn't repeat it to save my life. Yours are perfect.

Here are my Tatted Cluny leaves, with a small bead on the tip.(that...

As each one is made separately, and then added to the stalk, they can be made in different colours easily.
