What a relief, thank you! I used to use the method you use but find I have more control over the positioning of the stitch, being left handed. Also I'm unable to work without a pillow of some kind and it goes everywhere with me, cumbersome though it is. I hope you have some nearly finished Burano works you can share with us soon .....? Have a good Saturday night.

You are right... you have understood the method... is it what you were used to make?

Hi Emanuele, thank you so much for this reply. I think I have worked out how you are doing the final twist but I may be wrong so perhaps if this is so, you will correct me please. To make the final twist are you taking the needle under the loop of thread at the end?

Hi Teri, i'm really glad that you are asking me some questions!! you can ask me what ever you want. yes after the green plastic i put a paper which is really think but at the same time is strong, it could seems like plastic but it's not... it's just paper.. you can adopt tracing paper and it prevents to stain the lace because some times it could happen that the ink of the photocopy can trasfer on the thread... yes... i' sorry that on the sacola video my hands cover the movement... next time i'll try another position to film the work... my methos is really simple, actually. i make a simple stitch and then i twist it before the end of it... maybe you can see that at the end of the video... which show more.. me too i'm always hungry for knowledge.

thank you so much, i really appreciate all comments on my video... i'm learning too, so it can be really helpful hearing from others..

Thank you for taking the time to produce these videos for us, your generosity helps us beginners in Burano lace to make little forward steps. As Christiane so rightly says, the wonderful sacola does take over ones life a bit but what fun!

On the video you placed a clear film of plastic over the coloured film. Why was this necessary, to protect the needle perhaps? On the sacola video, it was difficult to see your hands forming the actual sacola stitch and your method is different to mine. I know there are many methods one can adopt but your method looked particularly interesting ......as though it was formed in two parts but I could not see this on the video. Apologies for all the questions, I am only hungry for more knowledge!!

MOrning Emanuele. Thank you for the friend request, I had been thinking of sending you a request too. Also, thank you so much for answering my questions. I was half afraid I was missing something and would appear a total idiot, but then decided it was better to look an idiot and have the reassurance. Your method is undoubtedly faster, and the consistency of the ground work can only result in better tension and therefore better lace. Doing it the old fashioned way does lead to much inconsistency on my part as the spacing of my groundwork tends to be variable despite my very best efforts. I've a few more questions for you so I hope you can bear with me ..

Hi Ten Dow!!! Thank you for asking!!! yes, this is how the structure of Italian Burano Needle lace is prepared... i've had already tryed the method you have descripted and if you can add the right tension is wonderful.. but the sewing machine can provide a really good tension and structure of the outline and i think that's faster than making that by hand...even though i enjoy it too.. i have to say that i follow the book of Ombretta Panese, as a BIBLE, all i can do and i will learn is because of her. about the second question, i can assure you that this method won't weaken the structure of the lace, because if the machine provide the right tension the work will be perfect. just see the works of Ombretta panese, she uses this method too.

Just thinking further, would this method not weaken the structure of the lace - only the filling stitches would only be worked over one thread instead of two?
