Needle lace

Needle lace (also known as needlelace or needle-made lace or needlepoint lace) is a type of lace created using a needle and thread to stitch up hundreds of small stitches to form the lace itself.

Some machine lace can be a good imitation of needle lace. These are indexed on another page.

Here are examples of needle lace from my lace collection (although, as I am not an expert, some of my identification may be wrong). Click on a picture below to go to a page about the piece, with a large scale image.
