" Dee K, I believe that there is no difference, but I love working with the silk thread because the lace will be more glossy"

"Does silk thread last longer than cotton? Which should be used for heirloom pieces?"

"Thank you for your compliments. The lace was made with silk thread (for the work 7x3 and for the net 3x3 because for this we use thinner thread). It measures  cm. 20 x 20 "

"Another masterpiece. I love all the variety in this piece. But you have still kept it well balanced. You are as skilled a designer as a lace maker. I am so glad to see your work here."

Hi Ombretta, thank you so very much for your response, it has clarified the technique wonderfully. Not much being achieved in our household/garden, where I definitely should be working, as my head is full of Burano!! Lace probably has this effect on many of us.x

I look forward to your next book with that stitch in.

Teri,

Teri,
Nous sommes maintenant quelque unes à avoir en main le livre de Ombretta. Tenez-nous au courant de votre expérience avec le "sacola" (or twisted buttonhole stitch), ce point tellement important et pas facile. Des heures de plaisir!
Now, some of us have on hand the book of Ombretta. Keep us informed about your experience with the "sacola" (or twisted buttonhole stitch) it's a so important stitch and difficult issue. Hours of fun!

Another question, - after looking at your blog, and drooling over your beautiful lace -

What is the silk thread you use?

do you use various thicknesses in each piece, ore one thickness for the whole of the piece?

At 9:58pm on September 2, 2014, Elizabeth Ligeti. said…

Do you do all your lace in the twisted stitch? - or most of it?

Your work is so beautifully even. I wish I could get mine looking like that!

I think I "discovered" needlelace at too late an age. If I had been young when I started, then I might have had the patience to practice more carefully at the beginning!!

Please keep showing us your work. it gives us inspiration.

Hi Ombretta, thank you. I would like to order a copy of the first book from you please. Could you please send me an Email message via this site on how to order/pay please. I will use google to translate the Italian text and hopefully your diagrams will guide me too. I'm excited!

Thank you for the link and information on the threads. Is the technique for working "gnochetti" stitch detailed in your book? I am looking ahead to Christmas and wonder where I can purchase a copy of your book with the technique detailed. Is the book available directly from you and if so what the price is? Thank you again Ombretta.
