Types of Lace

Wikipedia lists over 70 types of lace, in five main categories: Needle lace, Bobbin, Tape, Crocheted, and Machine–made. I think that to list them all on my main Types page would be something of an overkill. Interestingly, I came across a question on this subject in a quiz recently (October 2016) and found that I had exactly the same examples on my Types page; but I can't remember where I herad it before! I did find exactly the same question on a couple of websites – yet another example of the recycling of quiz questions.

Just for the hell of it, I decided to list all of Wikipedia's types on this Info page. If any of them come up in a quiz that comes to my attention, I can always add them to the main page!
