HOLLIE POINT NEEDLE LACE
Edit

Hollie Point is an English needle lace, made entirely of twisted buttonhole stitches, with the design made by the holes worked into the rows. It was often used for infants' clothing and usually had either geometric or religious designs. A design worked out on graph paper can be used for this type of lace.

Catherine Barley's book NEEDLELACE: DESIGN AND TECHNIQUES, CLASSIC AND CONTEMPORARY, 1993, reprinted 2001. Has a chapter on Hollie Point. A very good book. This is the one most often recommended as an intermediate level book, to follow the Guild of Needle Laces or Grimwood.

Gail Marsh's book 18th Century Embroidery TechniquesI came across a few pages on hollie point. The stitch illustration isn't as fine as Catherine Barley's, but it's pretty clear and makes sense. GMC Publications, Great Britain. 2012. ISBN 9781861088086.

As we find information, we will post resources here.
