Alix Hengen-Muhlen commented on Lorelei Halley's group point de gaze
"I think it is a good idea do do those samples. To have even stitches in gaze point is for me just practice and an even steady hand for tensioning. I usually work with 100/3 or 120/2 Egyptian cotton and the finer the thread the stiches become more…"

Alencon

For discussion of construction and style details of antique Alencon needle lace, and for those who want to learn it.   Alençon  We are now including Argentan.

Alix Hengen-Muhlen commented on Lorelei Halley's group point de gaze
"I dont think that the size of a piece is important as in the old time all the laces has been made in small pieces put together in the end phase. Usually a lacemaker worked the same stich lifelong, and the pieces went from one worker to the next.…"

Alix,

Renate Guggi from Austria is looking for your email-address (she was before 12 years in Belgium in needle-lace school). Would you be so kind as to give me your address? I will pass on this one to her.

Greetings!

Brona B.
