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.

FILET LACE BY THE SEA is a Mail Order Online Catalog specializing in the hard-to-find supplies for Filet Lace Techniques: Instruction books, Knotted netting, Patterns, Supplies, Accessories and the well appreciated 'Starting Kit' for the beginner with everything needed to start learning right away. Classes & Workshops available. Our exclusive Instruction, Services and Specialized Items make FILET LACE BY THE SEA the place to shop for this knowledge.  



The KNOTTED NET is the traditional netting used for the Filet Lace techniques. Our products are: Filet Net 3,  Filet Net 4,  Filet Net 5,  and our Small  Filet Net 7. The knotted fabric comes in different mesh sizes; the number after the product name refers to the number of meshes for 1 inch. Calculate the number of meshes you need and browse the Knotted Net section (or ask us) to find the size of the piece of Filet Net you need for your project.
