Learning Teneriffe Lace using The Technique of Teneriffe Lace by Alexandra Stillwell

I am thinking that it would be fun to learn this lace using the above free book.  I am going to start with the design on page 37, DMC thread size 20, and the Teneriffe Wheel - Circle from Snowgoose.  I will post picutures and if anyone wants to join in, that would be great.  Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

I downloaded the same book and have been looking at it, off and on.  There are just too many things I want to learn.  Maybe I'll join you.  But I want to finish my first Pag piece first.

I hear you there.  I am going to continue on the Pag lace too, but just want to in my spare time start this as well.

I learnt to work teneriffe lace from the same book. You're going to love it :)

Hi Linda,  What size circle are you doing?  I have several looms and sizes.  Are you using the Round stitch-round from Snowgoose?  I also have a set of large circle/squares and small circle /squares that I purchased from Beggars Lace [no longer in business]. They included directions for  the "Polka Spider Web".  I have the little Daisy Loom show in her book on pg.100. I have only played around with it.  This should be fun.  Hope others join in.

A Lace Book I don't know about? Shock Horror!  More about the book and where to get it, please!!!!!

And Linda - how come you have some "Spare Time" ? I need instructions about that too! :)

I have a copy of the real book & have been making Teneriffe for a while now. Made my own wheel from covered plastic. Works a treat.

Nice to hear from you Jenny.  What are you working on now?

I also have an actual printed copy of the book but it was incredibly nice of the author to allow it to be made available like that. It's the book I always recommend to people to learn from.

Thank you Lorelei. I did not think of checking it out like that!  My brain is not always in gear these days!!!!!

I have this book and it is what I used to get started. I have both the snowgoose round wheel and an older brass round wheel. I have found different shaped patterns online that I downloaded and have used to make cardboard patterns. I took a picture of an old square pattern and did the same think although I would love to find a real one. I am eternally grateful to the authors of the online books and sites I have found for patterns and directions.

Hi Lorelei,

What am I not working on! I have a piece of Teneriffe on the go to make myself a doiley similar to the one I made my friend a few years back. This one will have a different weaving pattern in the wheels though. Not sure of the end size yet, just working the 3rd wheel at the moment. This is all between some Lefkara Lace, knitted baby shawls, patchwork quilts & lots of other things.
