I’ll be the first to admit that I am not very knowledgeable about lacemaking techniques. This page is dedicated to point lace. It’s a topic I know very little about; but if you’re looking for info on this technique, I’m going to guess you’re having a hard time finding it — and I’m here to point you in the direction of the little bit of information that I do know about it. You can hopefully take it from there.
I’ve been collecting old needlework books, patterns and information since 1998. I don’t hold on to most of the books I come across; I tend to buy them, look through them to see if there are patterns I’d want to make or illustrations that I find particularly inspiring; and then most of them I tend to pass on to someone else after I’ve read them and enjoyed them for awhile. BUT I’ve been steadily working at cataloging where to find vintage pictures and information on various types of needlework techniques. This is one of those pages.
Here’s Where I’ve Found Photos and Information About Point Lace:
The following pictures of point lace projects were originally published in a vintage back issue of the Young Ladies’ Journal. I unfortunately cannot read the year on the photo I took; the issue is from November.
