My lace group just finished a retreat on making this lace. I wasn't able to go this year, but they said it was a lot of fun. I saw sample of some of there work at today's meeting. Now, I'm more interested in it to.
I just came across an article in Embellish Magazine Vol1 Issue 3 pg 24 about oya lace. It is apparently made in four different manners, The article lists Igne oyasi, Tig oyasi, Mekik oyalari, and Firkete Oya (this last being done on a fork) there apparently is a color code Turkish women use to communicate among themselves when making or giving this lace.
