RECOMMENDED BOOKS AND BOOK REVIEWS
Margaret Morgan published a very good book last year called "Filet Lace: Stitches & Patterns" Milner Craft Series.   2006 by Sally Milner Publishing Pty. Ltd., Bowral, NSW, 2576,  Australia
An excellent book with clear instructions and diagrams, and it takes you though in easy stages from elementary to more advanced. shows the various types of filet lace, too - 


Monique Valee DENTELLE SUR FILET NOUE


Marie-Jo Quinault "Filet Lace - Introduction to the Linen Stitch" Clear diagrams on how to map out your pathway for working this lace, and lots of patterns too.


Barbara MORTON DOWN EAST NETTING"

Contains a list of netting booklets:  http://www.mail-archive.com/lace@arachne.com/msg44704.html

NAMES I HAVE SEEN USED FOR THIS TYPE OF LACE:
filet lace, filet lacis, filet guipure, filet noue, Filet Arbeiten, Gipuer, filet brode, Filet Richelieu, filet d'art, guipure d'art, dentelle de Cluny. All of these names apply to laces made on knotted net. But Buratto, or Burato, is the name used for embroidery on square net which is not knotted ( a woven fabric with visible spaces between the threads).

This is a lace that I have worked. I enjoy doing it - somethin g I can see without a big magnifier, so is good to take out and about with me - like sitting in our small boat up a river while my husband fishes!! (My lacemaking is more productive some days!!)
Working out the pathway beforehand is the biggest challenge.

Margaret Morgan published a very good book last year called "Filet Lace: Stitches & Patterns" a soft cover, and I can recommend it.
