I was fooling around and playing today, instead of doing constructive work, and did a search on "needle lace" and videos in google. I found not only the puncetto valesiano video that has gained so much attention but also one in Turkish (not enough detail to follow the stitches exactly)

and one in needle lace in Croatia which does show enough to see the working method

another showing a few slides of antique Argentan needle lace

This one shows Burano in process, you can see how she uses her pillow:

This one shows Burano needle lace, how pillow are held, some work in the hand, one lady cuts the lace free using a razor blade

Here is one showing the cuttin away process:

The first Needle lace workshop I ever did was to make a flower in Helas needle lace - It was interesting the way that there is no buttonholed Cordonnette at the end - as you actually "pierce" through the Cordonnet as you work the fillings! Gosh that was a while ago - back in 1995 - I can remember going "cross eyed" doing the "darned/woven"areas !!

Yesw, the more you know, the more you find there is so much more you don't know!! (If you get my meaning!!) there seems to be "another type of lace" always appearing! Something that appears to be a new type of lace, - that has been around for years, maybe even centuries, but you haven't come across it yet!! Even some strange techniques!!
That is the wonderful thing about this craft/addiction, - there is always somthing new turning up!!

Lorelei, halas lace is All needlelace. The cloth like areas are needle made - just straight darning! This is the hard part, - getting it to look like fabric.
The trace thread is a thicker cord, which is not buttonhole stitched afterwards, but left as is. The lace is made Wrong-side up.
I haven't made any, - yet! - but I have read the books about it!

Wow, what a lot of interesting links!! Thanks everybody...I'll have to study for a while!

That Halas link is very interesting. I have always wondered just what distinguished Halas needle lace. It appears to be insets into woven cloth, with very little cloth left. Each piece is 80% or more needle lace.
