THE BEST BOOK TO LEARN THE LINEN STITCH! No one has ever put together a filet lace technique so detailed:
-- hundreds of step by step photos,
-- 3 distinctive levels of learning,
-- and 2 beautiful projects to confirm your knowledge.
Filet Lace is a very old needle art technique. The embroidery is quickly done with a needle on an already made knotted net, to make lovely projects from doilies to curtains.
INTRODUCTION TO THE LINEN STITCH
This step-by-step method teaches you the Linen Stitch (Point de Toile) to make your own project, from the layout of your pattern to a wonderful finished piece.
LINEN STITCH is the most forgotten of the basic stitches used in Filet Lace: it is the weaving of the thread with the knotted net to form a cloth. Filet Lace is traditionally made on a square knotted net, a fine fishing net with a knot in each corner.
FEW SUPPLIES and accessories are necessary: a knotted net stretched on a frame, a long needle, some thread and a pattern. A large project made with Filet Net 3 (curtain, bedspread, etc.) can be done quickly depending on the amount of embroidery in your pattern. This is because the background knotted net is already made for you. Doilies, curtains, pillows, clothing or Church linen, start looking and you will find many patterns just right for you.
FOR MORE THAN 27 YEARS, I have had the opportunity to compare the few methods used by other well-known filet-lacemakers. With time, for my own use, I have adapted the best of their methods and come up with an improved concept with 3 levels that I have been teaching for several years now. My well illustrated class book will teach you the Linen Stitch from A to Z. With practice, you will gain the knowledge needed to create, by yourself, a filet lace project in Linen Stitch as large and as intricate as you want.
BEGINNERS, YOU HAVE ASKED FOR A WELL DETAILED "HOW TO" BOOK
Frustrated by the lack of complete and detailed information, you have asked me to put together and publish a book explaining clearly and completely, the technique for the Linen Stitch. In fact, my wish is to bring this beautiful art form to you so you can pass on this knowledge.
