 No Christiane I have never worked with linen thread because now it's not like the old one. The modern thread often has small bumps that do not slide and then it becomes hairy. I prefer cotton or silk.

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.

The guide costs € 15,00 + € 1.00 the envelope. The mail for America is € 9.00 by priority mail or by registered mail € 12,50.
The full price is € 25.00 or € 28.50. Of course these prices are in Euro.

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!!

Si vous êtes à la recherche de documents relatifs à la dentelle, il ya de nombreux articles et livres en langue française qui sont disponibles ici. Textes en anglais sont la majorité, mais il ya des français et d'autres langues aussi. Ce sont des textes anciens qui sont maintenant dans le domaine public (pas les droits d'auteur). J'espère que vous trouverez des choses utiles et intéressants à lire!

(J'espère aussi que cette traduction de la machine est compréhensible!)
