Carrickmacross Applique - (Textile)

Carrickmacross Appliqué - (Textile) Carrickmacross Appliqué is a lace produced at Carrickmacross, County Monaghan, Ire., from 1820, with interruptions, to the end of the century. There are two varieties, appliqué and guipure. Drawing the design, which usually has a continuous outline, on a glazed, firm fabric, and covering it with net and close-weave muslin make the former. A whipped cord covers the outline, and the excess muslin is cut away, leaving the net ground intact. Guipure has no net, the design elements being held together with brides and the excess muslin cut away. Frequently, both varieties are used together.
