The LaceNews Channel on YouTube – Update for December 2011

One hundred twenty-eight videos and three more playlists were added in the December 2011 update. Three previously listed videos are no longer available. That brings the current video total to 1,918 in 84 playlists.  The sorting convention for playlist videos is first by post author, then by date, then alphabetically by title. An exception is the Fashion playlist, which is only sorted by date. A pdf of all videos in their sorted order for each playlist can be downloaded at Playlist_Dec_2011.  If  you are into playing with databases, you can also download my original EXCEL file at Playlist_Dec_2011.  These files have three sections – first a listing of all the videos in their sorted order with the new additions shown in red. Deletions are shown in green (the author can delete a post, or an account can close). Second, a list of just the new additions.  Finally, there is a summary of activity in each playlist by month. If you see something that is missing, or if you have suggestions for better organization, please write to

The playlist Update_December_2011, which is now the first one in the channel list in the old YouTube format, contains all the new videos added for December. The order is the same as in the pdf file. The Update_November_2011 playlist is still there, and the Update_October_2011 playlist has been deleted.

Newly added playlists include:

Belgium – Museums (1 video)
Poland  – Crochet (1 video)
Russia – Needlelace (3 videos)

Below I summarize the number of new videos added to existing playlists. In parentheses, I am also adding the number of videos in a playlist that were deleted outside of my control during the month. Note, I don’t always check every playlist for deletions with each monthly update – usually just the ones that have new additions.

Notes on the format:
No changes.

Here are a few new interesting things:
– I’ve changed the featured video on the LaceNews Channel home page to the new black and white video showing two generations of Cogne lacemakers from archival footage. Very unusual footage of this freehand technique.
– Several videos have shown up documenting the Birmingham exhibition ‘Lost in Lace’ (United Kingdom – Museums).
– I’ve added 7 new songs to Spain – Music. Not entirely sure of the words, but the titles seems to have to do with Encaje Bolillos.
– Check out the wonderful lace animation, Dagmar Bucanova – Balada v cipke / A Ballad in Lace (1981) , in Slovenia – Bobbinlace. I nearly chose this as the featured video – maybe next month.
– I’ve already done a post on the San Nicola Burano lace, and have now put up two videos covering the exhibition. I like how they superimpose the various draft cartoons showing the evolution toward the final design.
