Marcelle. ©Sadia's Designs-Creating Lace. “Thread is manipulated to make stitches, Stitches are combined to make lace, Lace is used to make or decorate things”. The word Lace brings to our minds visions of grandeur, softness and luxury. From time immemorial Lace has been a much desired and sought after commodity by all. Lace was more than just a sumptuous and highly coveted luxury, affordable by only the privileged and well-born. It was also the product of an industry that provided a living to thousands of workers, formed a huge portion of the revenue of many nations, and played a role in history that goes largely unrecognized and un-remarked today. We know little for certain about the origin of lace. Textile historians classify lace as “true lace” and “other lace”.

Needle lace and bobbin lace are considered to be true laces. Laces were never considered “incidental trimmings” but rather prized possessions and were even used to pay one’s debts.

Guide to FSL « DesignsBySiCK.com Embroidery Articles. By Patricia Haufschildt What does FSL mean?  FSL is representative of Free-Standing-Lace, which are stand alone lace embroidery designs that are done with thread only (with the exception of one’s machine, hoop & stabilizer). To create FSL you will also be using (as your stabilizer) WSS or Water-Soluble-Stabilizer, which is a non-woven dissolvable product prefect for lace projects. FSL designs have a somewhat dense and complex grid of underlay stitching which supports the embroidery after the design is completed and the WSS is washed out.

My personal preference is to purchase rolls of this type of product because there is less wastage that way, especially since I opt to use two layers of WSS for my FSL projects. I do find though, that WSS tends to leave some lint, so I advise performing a good clean up regularly, so be sure to de-lint, clean, & oil your bobbin area after each FSL project. When stitching FSL, generally I find the best upper tension to be set between 2.5 to 3.0. 1. Gear Sketch Illustration - 102329260.
