Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
These laces date from the late 19th century into the early 20th century. (I think.) This group does not include Venetian gros point, since we already have a separate group for that. Ombretta says "The difference is that in the Venetian lace motifs are connected by bars (like the bridges of the city), while in Burano lace are connected by the mesh (such as the fishnet of fishermen - Burano is an island)". She also says that " the points [laces] are equal or nearly so, and because the Burano lace came from the ancient Venetian".
