Nellwynn..  the only other way to make lace that i know of is tatting..not sure of its orignins or time period.. but i do know a number of people who do it as part of SCA A&S
I can check my sources and get back to you on that

This reminded me That I've been wanting to ask if anyone has managed to document crochet before the late 1700s. A while back I read that it was the earliest so far.

I would love to reproduce some of the old lacis patterns but I have yet to figure out how to make the net. The modern net I've seen has round not square holes and is nylon so I don't think it would work.

Many of them can be done in filet crochet (which I enjoy) but apparently it is just somewhat out of period. Like nearly 200 years. sigh

Does anyone know anything different?
