Just wondering if any of you have contemplated using weaving techniques inside our bobbin lace! Obviously it would add complications, but I am sure it can be done.
One thing I have always wanted was a floor loom. 8 shaft. One day I will get it! I am thinking that any cloth stitch area could be manipulated to hold pattern rather than just regular cloth stitch. Cloth stitch is essentially just plain weave, so cant we add a pattern, like 3/1 twill or even complex rose path ect by manipulating the way we cross and twist our passive pairs. I think this could be a revelation to me. Imagine a trail going around a mat that has an overshot pattern in it, in multiple colours. Ohh la la this is intreguing! regards Joseph --- This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software. https://www.avast.com/antivirus - To unsubscribe send email to majord...@arachne.com containing the line: unsubscribe lace y...@address.here.
