RETICELLO - Giuliana Buonpadre's Herbarium

RETICELLO - Giuliana Buonpadre's Herbarium

"Yes, thank you. You explain it very well.  Probably too many stitches, as I tend to work rather tight, and close together, as I cram more stitches in!  I need to relax a bit, and allow the stitches more room! I found it more difficult to…"

RETICELLO - Giuliana Buonpadre's Herbarium

"If the work curls, it normally has to do with the tension you put on the thread while placing your stitches (too loose or too tight) or the number of stitches you make in your motif . Another problem may occur when the linen is stretched too…"

"You do beautiful work. I love this. I would like to know more about the threads you use.  I have tried one piece of this type of lace, - from the new Aussie book by Margaret Stephens, but some bits seemed to curl up a bit."

Thank you,Yolande, for the information and sources for both the DMC and Anchor threads.  I have only been doing reticella for 3 weeks. I discovered it quite by accident as I was looking for hardanger tutorials online, in order to learn that technique.  I found some beautiful designs online and followed the "trail" to your website.  There I read about Ms Buonapadre's books and your workshops with her.  I ordered her book that contained the sampler by Irma that you had worked.  From that book I taught myself the stitches that I used in the little pink linen coaster that I posted in photos. That is my first and only completed piece.  I ordered two more books, and I am on my way.  Lots to learn, but I am passionate about learning accurately and authentically. You are quite an inspiration for me.  I started a hand towel this afternoon.  Will keep you posted.

Regarding Pag lace, I think that until the UNESCO video was published just a few years ago (about Pag and other Croatian laces) nobody in the world knew anything about it, or that it existed.  We have searched for books but there aren't any yet. There is one in Croatian but it is about history and culture rather than instructions on how to make it. If you go to the Pag opening page on our network you will find all the information we have been able to find.  Our member Xiaojie started teaching us using sequential photographs, and Linda has carried on with it.

Hello Yolande, it's not fair that we have to choose is it, there are so many lovely projects out there and so many different techniques to learn and history to read about. Goodness I need to live to 200 years to fit everything in, there are so many things I want to do. Your lace work is really beautiful.
