Needlelace fillings for Ayrshire Whitework embroidery. I've been studying, collecting and practicing for almost 20 years.

I am an experienced embroiderer and have collected the finest examples of Whitework I can find. My goal is to study, preserve and educate so this exquisite form of needlework is not lost. The delicate lace and lace fillings used in the finest Whitework have always fascinated me. With no point of reference, I determined to "figure out". How they were made. Years of research(don't laugh, it was a rather circuitous route) led me to needlelaces. Finally, I can learn to make those amazing stitches!
