"I will admit to just using my lace ethafoam pillow for small pieces that I do. The pillow is slightly rounded so the pieces have to stay small. I have also bought a square block of that foam to try as it is flat and seems to hold well. I have one…"

"Elizabeth All those photos are interesting.  They are good ideas, and even simple cardboard is useable.  The first one looks like what we call "corrugated" cardboard -- 2 layers, with a middle layer."

"      I think that the rack have to be suitable for the line that we will use. I used many types. The strong card covered also (1° photo). Today, in Renda sol (Sol Lace), looking for much quality in the final product and using…"

"Lorelei, I have thought of foam core before though I have not tried it. I wondered how stable the core would remain & whether it could be reused. I have a center hole in my base, then thread the end of the thread through the hole & secure…"

"Jenny Your description of two pieces of cardboard brings to mind another possibility: foam core.  It is sold in artist supply stores and is 2 layers of cardboard with a thin layer of foam between them.  That would be a perfect place to…"

"I use two pieces of strong card covered with thin batting & fabric as a base, and the pins go in between around the side. I push the pins right in so there is less catching. I can make my base to whatever shape & size I like, but so far have…"

"Plastic canvas does come in rectangular pieces and in octagons -- both shapes often used in sol laces.  But I don't think the substance of your backing material is crucial.  Do what works and what you can find locally.  I look…"

"I wanted to try foam because then I can work in any shape, also it's easier for me to buy.  "

"Rosalind I don't think it matters about the kind of foam for teneriffe.  Just choose something that is comfortable to hold and to work on.  I would choose a thin piece 1 inch thick rather than something 2 inches…"

"I don't use foam, I use a round plastic canvas with stitches around the edge to hold the warp threads"

cushion for teneriffe

Please tell me what sort of foam I need to get for teneriffe lace.  I have seen open cell high density foam, the sort that would absorb water and closed cell high density foam, the sort that would float, is more plasticky and harder.

Rosalind replied to Amber Lackey's discussion Beading Needle in the group Sol laces
"I have not tried it yet, but I know that Clover has a blunt, curved needle called a Huck needle which I have seen advertised as suitable for teneriffe lace. "

Sol laces

Sol laces include Tenerife, Nanduti, and Hvar. These are all made on a base of threads laid as spokes of a wheel. Motifs are often round, but may be hexagonal, square, or sometimes complex shapes.See More

Welcome.  Please go to NOTES and read them all.  They cover our policies and the software.  We do have a group for sol laces (teneriffe and nanduti), which you may wish to join.  Also, on the opening page for that group, just under the icon, is a list of resources.  There are links to a site where Alexandra Stillwell's book and the DMC Encyclopedia are available online or  as free downloads.  The various nanduti sites posted there have lots of inspirational photos, as well as images of their way of working the lace.
