Tip Of The Week : More Lutradur Lace

If you have tried out the Lutradur lace, and feel it's altogether too flimsy for your liking, try folding the Lutradur in half before you stitch it, or even add a third layer.  That will make it a bit more substantial, and, of course, there will be less distortion when you stitch into it.  Or you could try moving up a weight, from 30 to 70, for instance. Or both!  The piece shown here was made with two layers of Lutradur 30, and whilst the difference isn't really visible, I can certainly feel it.
