Is anyone doing Pag?
18 Replies

I really like this and I don't think people are doing this very much. Is anyone doing it out there who can tell us more about it? Are there any distinctive stitches?

I love fine spinning and knitted lace, the embroidery crossovers like drawn thread work and pulled fabric embroidery, I crochet, and sometimes I do bobbin lace, mainly torchon and tape based laces. I am researching Australian Lace Crochet and am the textiles curator at our local museum. I teach a small group of local ladies.

Have you noticed that your video has had 720 views since you posted it?  It is a very popular and very valuable part of our network.

Thanks for replying again, Rochelle. Yes, I would definitely do some trials to figure out design, gauge, fit, etc. That project went down the list during Christmas. It may resurface this spring. Your comments are always helpful.

Thanks for the info, Rochelle. That is helpful. As I said, it's still at the planning stages, so not sure how complicated it will be--not terribly as I want to actually finish it! It does close. I can't remember all the correct terms, but it is 9" long and about 22" spread. It is inexpensive and I think it will be a training piece to see it I think I can/want to improve to another.

About a week ago I posted some links to Irish lace websites, in our LINKS & TUTORIALS. I noticed your interest in Carrickmacross and wondered if you were aware of them.

I think the needles discussion was in the puncetto group. You can use the search box - upper right hand corner - to find discussions of particular things. Just type in "needles", and it will search needlelacetalk.

Hi Rochelle, you could work from bottom up, I worked around the circle(sideways) so I could get to the next place I wanted to build.

Hi Rochelle, I put a sketch of the form of corded buttonhole stitch I used on the pyramids.

Oh yah, I know people that do the other Croation tenif style lace with fine linen threat. I think its because it holds the knots well and has a stiffness to it.

Hi ,yes it is a needle lace pillow . I intend to use it for some of the laces I do, but not all. I have a rotator cuff injury(Calcific Tendinitis/bursitis/frozen shoulder) since March. Its taking along time to heal and I can't knit or do anything that would stress it. I think the pillow will make it easier for some of the laces to free up my other hand to work with. I can move my arm from elbow down only. Where the sites helpful for you?
