Dentelle de Lille du Puy: Centre d'enseignement de la dentelle au fuseau du Puy-en-Velay
Whether in the well-known French magazine "La Dentelle" (The Lace), or in the handbook "Les bases de la dentelle au fuseau", or in other books on lace and trims, the hands drawing such delicate patterns and crafting such enchanting models are always, immediately recognizable. We're talking of Nathalie Hubert and her incomparable design precision. There's nothing approximate, uncertain or "faltering": her technical design is actual artwork. With their threads woven with professional precision and neatness, here are 35 lace trims, with illustrations and explanations, to bring home the so-called "dentelle Lille du Puy". Thanks to Nathalie, it'll be easy to understand the different technique and stitches, to soon get ready to craft wonderful pieces with a form of art that has been enchanting people for centuries.
