Sewing with lace – a resource list

Beautiful lace at Britex Fabrics - csews.com

Last year Natalie Wiener, the notions manager at Britex Fabrics, gave the Bay Area Sewists a great overview of lace for our Learn about Lace meetup. (I’m the organizer for the group.) She also gave us a really helpful handout with links to lace tutorials and more on lace. I put a version of this list as a page under the Bay Area Sewists section of my blog but it was pretty bare bones – no photos and just URLs.

I think it deserves its own post. So I went through all the links to make sure they still worked, added the article titles, more info on sources and photos from the meetup. All the comments after the article titles are from Natalie, unless otherwise indicated in [brackets].

I took the photos at the Bay Area Sewists meetup at Britex Fabrics. Here are links to some of Britex’s lace fabrics and lace trims. (I wrote a recap of this fun meetup here.)

    Interesting list, thanks for sharing!
    If I can, I’d love to add my 40 best tips for sewing lace, it’s one of the most read articles on my blog (I wrote it when I designed a lace skirt with couture details in a wide size range, available for free on my site).
    If it’s not ok to share there, please delete and excuse me 🙂

      Hi, thanks for mentioning your article. As I mentioned in my post, this resource list is not mine but from Natalie at Britex Fabrics so I can’t add anything to it unless I run it by her.

    Hi Chuleenan,

    Thanks for sharing this incredible cornucopia of info!! I have so many small pieces of lace trims and a few wider widths for appliques and lingerie. This gives me some food for thought.

      You’re welcome! Natalie provided such a great list. I realized it deserved its own post. 🙂
