Needlepoint lace collar
MFA# 53.527

Description

A hand embroidered lace made with a needle and thread. Needlepoint, or needle, laces were first made in the late 15th century probably in Italy. They quickly spread through Europe and are still being made in Ireland, Belgium, and Asia. To make needlepoint lace, single threads are lightly stitched to a design drawn on a support paper. Without penetrating the paper, the threads are covered using the buttonhole stitch and straight threads are added to interconnect and support the pattern. When finished, the threads attaching the lace to the paper are cut.
