Until I saw a class offered through the Kuwait Textile Arts Association, I had never heard of the beautiful craft of Romanian point lace. To begin, you must first crochet a cord, then you baste it to a piece of fabric that has the design outline drawn on it. ("Sunshine's Creations" has generously put up a tutorial on her blog, if you are interested in learning how to make the cord) . Finally, you fill in the spaces with various embroidery stitches. The white sample is the piece that I made in the class. The red variegated sample is one I did later as a color experiment. I am planning to use this technique with yarn instead of thread to include in my freeform crochet work. I haven't found too many resources about learning to make this type of lace. However, there is a how-to video, with step by step instructions, available for sale here. The best book I have seen is "Romanian Point Lace" by Angela Thompson and Kathleen Waller. Unfortunately, it is out of print. I was lucky to get a copy before it went out of print. It must be rare, as the price of the book now, if you can find it, ranges from $199-$250. It is a beautiful book. If you see a copy at a reasonable price, snap it up!
