Halas lace was first made in 1902 in Kiskunhalas, Hungary. Halas is a needlelace worked with fine thread, and the pattern motifs outlined with thick thread, instead of buttonholed as in other needlelace. It has an Art Nouveau look. The darning stitch is worked in the solid design areas to give the effect of finely woven cloth and there are over 60 types of filling stitches.
The Lace Museum is also offering online workshops in Turkish Needle Lace (Igne Oya), Bedfordshire Bobbin Lace, Exploring Grounds with GroundForge and more!
