Lace types

A vandyke (or vandyke edge) is a seventeenth century term referring to an edge of a decorative textile, as for instance a trimming, that has a deeply indented, ornamental triangular form. 

Youghal lace (also called Youghal needlepoint lace or Point d'Irlande) is a form of needlepoint lace from Ireland. This style of lace was first made commercially at the Presentation Convent, Youghal, County Cork, Ireland, when a school, with lacemaking facilities, was opened in 1852 after Mother Mary Ann Smith had learnt the techniques by unpicking some old Venetian raised needlepoint forms.
