Spanish Needle Lace

Needle Lace La coruna

Needle Lace Vigo

Needle Lace is on my list of  ‘must do’s.   An older member at the Embroiderers’ Guild gave two of us some tuition,  and believe me,  it is very satisfying to do, but requires a lot of concentration.

When I am on holiday,  and I see some nice needlework,   I just have to take a photograph.   oth these shop windows were in towns in the North-East corner of Spain.   Often,  in tourist areas, the goods on display are machine-produced and/or not good quality work.   But I was really impressed by the standard of these pieces.

I have great admiration for the patience which must be expended in producing work like this.   The larger pieces must take ages to complete.   Of course the price of these articles does not reflect this at all,  as they must be priced to attract customers.  Craft workers all over the world are underpaid for their work.   I just hope that the recipients of these items will appreciate them.
