Needle Lace Workshop

I’m addicted to these SFSNAD classes!! This class is all about needle lace. The most interesting part to me, is that we are creating lace pieces that can be taken off the fabric and used for different purposes.

Cordonnet

This is called a Cordonnet. It is what all the lace stitches will be attached to. The lace stitches will not go through the ground fabric, they will be wrapped around the cordonnet at the edges.

Brussels Stitch with Return.

This was the first technique we learned and give a really solid appearance. We learned how to change colors within the lace as well.

Brussels With Return – the return thread has been replaced with gold thread.

This one was super fun to make and I love the look of it. I will find a reason to use this in the future.

Trellis Stitch.

This one was a little harder to do. I still need lots of practice to get an even look and to have the “knots” line up. Even though the are offset, they should line up.

We were using quite a thick thread so this is quite dense. With a thinner thread it would look much better and a lot more lacy.

Spiral Trellis Stitch

This one still needs to be finished but is very enjoyable.
