Needle lace by Alix Hengen Muhlen. 621 Alix Hengen of Luxembourg has generously shared photos of lace she has made, and given permission for me to display them here.
Needlelace by Alix. 619 AHM Alix's 2 handkerchiefs finished in 2003 are as good in workmanship and design as any antique piece. Absolutely superb! She writes: "These are 2 handkerchiefs, of about 500 hours work each. One is a new pattern of Mrs Boone in Art Deco fashion [the 1st] , the second is a Duchesse pattern I found in a book by Mme Parfait-Laitem."
782 AHM The design is made of 4 repeats.

628 Needle lace designed and made by Martha Halbert. oth627 She used 80/2 cotton on the first angel, and used it to try out several different stitches from Therese de Dillmont's ENCYCLOPEDIA OF NEEDLEWORK. On the second angel she used Mettler 50/3 for outlining (cordonnet) and Brok 100/2 for filling and couching. Martha says: "What I really like about needlelace is that you can take any shape or picture that you see or can think up and design a pattern using the various filling stitches that are available. We make some of our pieces by taking small motifs out of antique lace and copying them."
Needlelace by Irma Osterman., one of America's foremost needle lace makers and teachers. oth624 "Let Me Grow Lovely Growing Old". It is a marvelous mixture of guipure and mesh grounded needlelace. She has also used gold thread and colors wonderfully, although one never sees antique needlelace that is colored. This is a truly modern piece with design and execution equal to any antique lace I have ever seen.
625 made and designed by Irma Osterman, in the style of Point de Gaze.
