Beginning Teneriffe Lace

Beginning Teneriffe Lace Class

Teacher: Jonalene Gutwein

This correspondence course will give you the basics of the beautiful needlelace technique of Teneriffe. Teneriffe lace does not use the typical needlelace buttonhole stitch. Instead, it uses several drawn thread stitches such as needleweaving, spiders, and the knot stitch. Using these three basic techniques, many lovely patterns may be developed. In this course you will learn the basic stitches allowing you create many unique medallions on your own later.

The course also includes several on-line videos that you may access to see specific techniques being worked. These videos are available on Jonalene Gutwein’s website and your coordinator will have the user name and password. These videos will be available to you during your chapter’s course time and for three weeks following the scheduled conclusion of the course.
