Aemilia Ars Needle Lace is a bold needle lace styled on 16th and 17th century reticella, but interpreted by a group called the Aemilia Ars Society of Bologna, Italy in the Arts and Crafts Movement of the 1880's to 1920's.  The aim was to create beautiful needle lace quickly for sale.  It is worked with heavier threads than the needle lace done in the 16th to 18th centuries, and the lay-up of the pattern differs.  Come learn to make some needle lace that is easier than the traditional types!

The two day class will cover the basics and have you well on your way to completing the little flower in the square border.   

Materials needed:

Size 50 crochet cotton (white or ecru)
Tapestry needle to fit the thread
Quilting thread (a little heavier and stronger than just sewing thread, and I can share if you don't have it on hand)
Pricking pad (could be a couple of layers of felt or a computer mouse pad)
Pricker is helpful, but not a necessity.
Pattern and instructions are provided.
