"I would think you would want to at least overcast the edge and turn it under once to make a nice lace edging on it.  Then you can work into the folded edge and space your stitches right for the lace look desired.  Choose a weight of…"

Using Armenian needlelace as a trim for clothing

I've had a small amount of experience doing Armenian needlelace, mostly just practice on the edges of ribbon, or handkerchiefs. I'd like to use it as an edging on a pair of cut off jeans. I've only done this with crochet before with good results. Anyone have any advice? I'm thinking I need to start by putting ti stitches pretty close together to avoid a lot of fraying, as I'm not going to hem the edge of the jeans. Any help would be great!See More

"Keddie Practice is the only solution.  Your attempt here is a lot better than my early attempts.  Just keep experimenting with different patterns, or even re-make some patterns, and just try to make each one a little better than the…"

this is the leaf bookmark I started a while back. I'm not really happy with it. My work is really inconsistant.

What kind of needle lace do you make, and how long have you been making it?
I've only just begun

basic needle lace, Armenian, Puncetto and Halas. Quite ambitious I know, but I can dream!
Tell us about your other lace related interests.
I've done a bit of tatting which of course isn't needle lace.I think Roumanian Point lace is lovely, and I'd like to learn this also. I love looking at all the lace others have made! Also, I enjoy learning about lace history.

Thanks.  Since you used the DONATE button, it automatically a note to your donation that it was for NEEDLELACETALK.  I'm glad you are going to Denver, and I think you will enjoy Liz's class.  I wish I could go.  No money.  You'll have to promise to tell us all about it.

Hi Keddie, I'm glad you liked my lace stuff, thanx. I have been doing all different textile design and different laces/embroidery/etc.. all my life. For the longest time I was doing cobweb/gossemer knitted lace/spinning/colourwork, but in March I enjured my left shoulder and it was way to painful to knit, so I started to focus more on the other laces that I know how to make. I do alot of different projects at one time, so I'm never bored and my shoulder is on the mend.

The stitches can be close together. I do mine that way.

Re the coloured butterfly, - It now belongs to the RMLG, as they are doing a screen project, and I made it for one of the panels. I don't know if the project is still ongoing. I hope the butterfly is still in good hands. You can ask when you meet them!! - and say Hi from me! :) Let me know how you go.

Hi, Keddie,
I see you live in Denver, so are you a member of the Rocky Mts Lace Guild? If so, - you can get some help from a couple of them, - as I know them and know they may be able to help you.

If you are Not a member, - I suggest you join. They are a terrific group. Although I live in Australia, I am a member there, as my daughter used to live in Denver, and she, too is a lacemaker, so we both joined.
Sing out if I can be of any help - I seem to be one of the more experienced in this group.

Did you find the discussion in our GROUP called BEGINNERS. I saw that you joined the group. All our discussion of the beginners pieces is under the DISCUSSION titled CHALLENGE - AN ONGOING WORKSHOP. Glad to see you started a leaf.

I am glad you have joined. How are you getting on with your needlelace? I sent you the books recently. Hope that they arrived OK.
