- bobbin lace
- hairpin lace
- needle lace
I think the person was confused, because a lot of these are in the same four categories. Which is my opinion. She seemed to be naming laces, of which there are way more than seven, like hundreds! Looks like she was trying to name techniques and didn't succeed, the lace fairy has 5 techniques on her site but in looking at them, her last one is a combination of multiple other techniques so it would still break down into these four categories. Some laces can incorporate more than one of the techniques. That is why, once you learn one lace, it is easy to learn another as they may share similar techniques.
- loop lace = knitting, crochet, hairpin lace, Romanian, oya...
- knotted lace = tatting and netting, American Macramé, oya...
- woven lace = bobbin lace is a sort of weaving, battenburg and other tape laces, teneriffe....
- needle lace = Romanian, teneriffe, battenberg, oya , beading...
OK, I do:
hairpin, needle, crochet, tatting, teneriffe lace, bobbin lace, Romanian, macramé, hand loom weaving, polka spider web lace, nanduti, battenberg/battenburg lace, oya, beading etc..... the list goes on and on.
I pretty much do some in each category.
Trying to learn knitting and weaving.
What laces do you make?
