With Jeanine Robertson probably pursuing other work such as translations for books and contributing other work, I feel like there is a gap now.  Her blog is/ was an excellent resource for all sorts of Italian needlework.  But I discovered Puncetto, Venitian lace and Aemilia Ars through her blog and she was an excellent resource for newly published works, as well as the occasional technique demo.Are there other needle lace blogs that are updated regularly that can fill the gap?  I probably…See More

I'll be glad to heip you learn. I started by making myself a puncetto handbook. I printed all of the diagrams on how to make the knots and motifs. I then cut and arranged these diagrams and pasted them in a notebook. Then I practiced and made the motifs. I glued the completed motifs next to their picture and added notes if needed.

Hi, Robert. Thank you for the wonderful comment. I hope I can inspire you to learn how to make puncetto lace. I am self taught, my teachers are the wonderful people who posted tutorials on the internet. Puncetto is one form of Mediterranean knotted lace. Iwas going to learn reticella needle lace but found puncetto instead. Now I'm hooked. If there's anything pucetto related that I can heip you with please don't hesitate to ask.

Your question is interesting, and it is part of the reason that I started needlelacetalk. I myself am not knowledgable enough to distinguish all the various needle laces from each other. (I am far more of an expert on bobbin laces. But I am a great admirer of needle lace and those who make it.) So far as I know the only online material about lace identification aim at showing how to distinguish needle lace from bobbin lace, or from embroidered net, or from machine lace. I am not aware of any site that will help you with the fine details of the various needle laces. Here on this network we have members who have tried to learn various of these national or geography-based laces, and in specific cases they can probably tell you some of what you want to know.

the first thing would be to join our  HISTORY-IDENTIFICATION group and ask your specific questions there.  If you look at our YOUGHAL-KENMARE group you will find a book review I did last year for a book put out by Elizabeth Kurella, a lace merchant. She used laces she had access to and a simple how-to book by the late Irma Osterman. From that book I learned that the Irish needle laces used only a single thread as the outlining thread for the motifs and whole lace. Other western and central European needle laces used a double outlining thread. 

In your example of Burano -- I have been trying to figure that out myself. (What the distinguishing features are.) 

If you go to each of our groups, there will be a recommended book list in most. These lists will include how-to books that might help you make the distinctions that you want to do. Also, in our BEGINNERS group the list includes Barley, Earnshaw, Delesques-Depalle. These all have chapters on several laces and discuss the technical differences between them. 

Also our PHOTOS are sorted into albums, some by those who posted the photos, and some that I have collected in order to bring laces identified as of the same sort into groups that can be studied for specific differences. What I am trying to say is that I do not know of any reliable site that can answer your question. We are working on it ourselves, slowly. Some of our members have posted photos of antique laces in their collections, often with knoledgable comments. You might also look at those albums.
