During the reign of the Sun King, about 30 Venetian lacemakers taught this type of lace to some French teachers and so it spread to France. When the Serenissima Republic of Venice became aware of the economic damage than to her derived, ordered the immediate return to the ladies with the threat of death, but it was too late. In the old archives of Venice, there is still the order. So the two laces are a bit similar.
Yes, this site is Wonderful, and I, too, have learned so much about various needle Laces. Everyone is friendly and helpful, - but that is what it is all about. We help each other, and learn from each other, and the craft will survive!
I am glad you are enjoying both this site, and making needlelace, and also contributing, so we can learn from you, as well as the other way around!!
