Re: blackwork?/punta in aria
- I learned the basic form in a 1 hour class, the teacher was really
nice to have copied pages from "The Technique of Teneriffe Lace" by
Alexandra Stillwell and later the teacher sent me additional pages on
more patterns. If you can weave a thread under and over you can do
Teneriffe. But beware I can't really say it's in period for SCA.
Athena's Thimble lists it as one of the needlelace forms so it's the
main reason I did it. I think I will spend more time doing cut work
and bobbin lace which I can document. Heck I've got patterns from
1557 that I'm wanting to try, but I'd better learn to walk before I
try some insanity. Oh and here is the best part. Some of the patterns
they have the extant lace piece for or nearly identical patterns
shown on a portrait. Oh don't you just love when that happens?

Curiosa, who is head of the Atlantian Lacemakers' Guild and who has
taught the Pennsic bobbin lace classes in the past.
