"Threads Make The Lace"


"Theads Make the Lace" is an educational project for members to participate in.  Using the pricking available here, choose the size pattern, size, color and fiber of thread you want to use to make the small Torchon piece. 

  • Include at least one spider and one whole stitch diamond
  • Use the cross-twist-pin-cross-twist Torchon ground

You can either send a good quality digital image of your lace including a ruler for scale, or send the actual piece in.  Images will be posted on the website to demonstrate what effect thread choice has on the finished look of the lace.  Lace that is sent in will be used to make a display for NELG demonstrations, exhibits, etc.


Questions should be addressed to  Thank you for your participation in this group project, and don't forget to report  your volunteer hours spent working on it!
