For those who love hand made lace.
On this page post any links to things of general interest, that don't fit into one of the groups.
Photos from a Spanish lace day. Mostly torchon with some Cluny type, and some tape lace. I am always surprised that these lace events in Spain attract a few hundred lace makers. Here, a full house is about 25.
An interesting video showing the old have processes from linen stems to woven cloth (warped weighted loom).

Two people making bobbin lace with rope. Really fun to see.
Watch a bird sewing leaves together to make a bag for her chicks.
Here is a video, Russian language, of a gray haired lacemker doing traditional Russian tape lace, with her computer screen up and running while she illustrates different designs. This is for those who think all us old ladies with antequated hobbies are idiots adverse to technology.
This one, same 2 ladies, but photos of portraits of people wearing lace.
Krusheva Кружева I think means "bobbin lace" or just "lace"
a 36 minute video on youtube showing a Russian museum lace collection. At 18 min 48 sec are some tape laces made in real silver thread. I haven't watched the whole thing, but I think it worthwhile.
Some beautiful and very interesting photos in this album. Unusually good modern designs, some antique pieces with good detail photos, many examples of lace used in clothing, with unusual ideas about how to connect lace to clothing, drape it across, design skirts, all sorts of stuff.
These aren't exactly lace. They are crochet sculptures of female forms, in very realistic poses.
Holly Van Sciver has a lot. Google her at Van Sciver Bobbin Lace. Also Laurie Waters has collected links to suppliers, sorted by country (for shipping issues). https://www.pinterest.com/LaceNews/ ; Look about 80% down the page to the S's, for SUPPLIERS. There are several American suppliers, also Canadian ones.
I just received my first set of 12 bobbins. where can I buy a stand and bolster pillow that won't cost a fortune?
LOKK, the Dutch national lace guild, has a marvelous set of photos from their 2018 40 year anniversary exhibition. They have an interesting way to display sample strips, and lots of very modern clothing designs and lace hats.
Huge painted lace, bobbin and needle
tallies in color
Here is an unusual shape for a collar/scarf. It gives me ideas.
Can you imagine this many American lace makers all in one place together?
A pattern book from 1601. Appears to be needle lace. Back part of book is filet designs.
Teaching books published by THE LACE GUILD.
This album is from a lace event in Rijeka this year. It has a lot of what I think may be Idrija and Lepoglava bobbin lace, tape laces, and needlelace -- Pag and oya.
Interesting laces --
