Sources of Information on how to do Puncetto

PUNCETTO
"I recently purchased Puncetto Valsesiano - Manuale de Base from
http://www.italian-needlecrafts.com/.
I live in the USA, and received my order in a week. This is Elena Rossi's website (a member of NEEDLELACETALK) She speaks English. For those seeking puncetto instructions, this is a terrific book. Manuale de Base means the basics. If you do not understand the Italian (like me), the diagrams are easy to follow. After a year of looking for basic techniques, I am well pleased. In addition, I am more confident, after fumbling with other sources. Best wishes, Lucy Ludwig"

From Lucy:
A SCUOLA DI PUNCETTO VALESIANO - extremely well executed book on Puncetto with clear, colorful graphics and lots of pictures. The graphical notation system is the same as in Manuale de Puncetto Valsesiano. I think the Scuola and the Manule pair well, but one or the should get you started.

Avital's review of this book: http://apinnick.wordpress.com/2011/03/24/book-review-a-scuola-di-puncetto-valsesiano/ 
PUNCETTO COLORATO - by the same publisher, with the same high production values, covers colorwork. I find the designs and color combinations very inspiring for all sorts of techniques.  See her full review at:  http://apinnick.wordpress.com/2011/05/29/book-review-manuale-del-puncetto-colorato/#comment-2340

Laurie Waters has collected a lot of information on puncetto for her article on LaceNews, including some how-to videos in other languages.  But seeing the motions might still be useful.

German language.  The first one is really clear.

Here is a Japanese site with clear photos of the first stage, using thick cord.  Maybe it will help you see the starting point.

Anchor Manual of Needlework - Chapter 11 is about Puncetto and includes instructions. This book can be found on Amazon.com.

Poncetto Lace by Signorina Thersa Rizzi - a 16 page booklet published in 1917 that gives instructions and different patterns.

Comment by Elizabeth Ligeti. on Thursday

I am interested in the instructions that are a free download from the Smithsonian website, -- but I cannot find where to go on that site.  Is there a link, please, that I can click on - there does not seem to be anywhere on the page to ask, even! (I know - I am hopeless at finding things on web sites.   sorry!)

I have 2 books in Italian on how to do Puncetto, - one is for Coloured Puncetto.  I now have to learn Italian, so I can read my various types of Lace books!!!

Comment by Judy howard on Thursday
Thanks Linda I'm going to need all the luck I can get. I'm self taught in pretty much everything but bobbin lace. I think I understand the basics of puncetto and I'm sure it's going to take a lot of practice. Your work is beautiful so I might take you up on some help.

Good luck.   I'll be glad to help you out in learning puncetto,  anytime.

Comment by Linda Moore on Wednesday

Hi,  Judy.  Welcome to the group.  A few years ago I was a complete beginner like yourself.  I searched everywhere for information in English.  The only books I found are as follows.. Anchor Manual of Needlework , which has a chapter on Puncetto (Chapter 11).  I found the instructions a little confusing as a beginner,  but the illustration of the basic puncetto stitch working ftom right and left is clear and exvellent.   The book is available used from Amazon for under ten dollars.  It's well worth having.

The other book,  Directions for Making Puncetto Lace,   is available as a free download from the Smithsonion website.  I think you will find the link above.  This was written in 1917.  The instructions are a little confusing,  but the illustration are worth having.

The most helpful to me when I started to learn was Brona's blospot,  Sita Krajka.  The link is also above.  Avital also has put out very good onstructios for beginning.

Link also above.   I hope this information is helpful to you.
