Hi… Thank you for my recent purchase, it’s just what I’ve been looking for! In answer to your question what do I use it for? I make large scale military and diorama models and have been after a suitable netting material to compliment my highly detailed models (high quality camouflage netting) and this is just perfect. Thank again… Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ... Keith

... and I have not trouble with the long threads now but my husband laughs as he watches me and quotes back to me what you told me to do. He stays well away when my arms reach out. HA.

FILET NET 7 - 3mm

FILET NET 7 - 3mm

Hello Marie-Jo! I received the package today, and I am so happy. I havn't told you what I need it for. My daugther jumped om a trampoline in her folk costume. She had her great, great grandmothers apron on, and that did not end well. There is a piece of filet work in the apron, and I will make a new one for her. I know how to make the knotted net, but I havn't got the time for it. I must cut it "diagonalt", but I still have enough for two or three aprons. Thank you very much! 


...I have read thru the book completely once, and worked thru the paper exercises in levels one and two, completed the practice project in level one, and gotten about half way thru the doily project for Level 2. I know I will need to really take my time for that border, but still I get visible results so much sooner than my needlepoint and cross stitch projects, which is so satisfying.

FILET LACE is a very old technique. A hand embroidery is done with a long blunt needle of thread, on a delicate knotted net lace (la fishnet), using counted stitch patterns. With the many techniques of Filet Lace we make lovely projects: doilies, clothing, curtains, trims and so much more.
