If it helps, I have a website teaching you how to make lace, and people have learned to make lace from it from scratch. Even if you find a lace teacher, it may help. The web address is http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/lace/index.htm and it's all there and free.

Where are you in California?  There are fairly large lace communities in several areas.  I know of a group in Sacramento I could refer you to, several in Southern, CA (San Diego, LA, etc) as well as some groups in the Silicon Valley area.  Louise Colgan teaches through the City of Fremont, if you happen to live close enough to attend weekly classes with her.

I see you are in California. There are quite a few lace makers in California. There are 2 ways to find some.

1st Ning's software allows us to search our member list for geographical location.  Instructions here, paragraph 9.  http://laceioli.ning.com/notes/HOW_THE_SOFTWARE_WORKS  

2nd You can check the IOLI.org site, find your geographical region, contact the appropriate regional director, and ask her for help locating someone near you.    http://www.internationalorganizationoflace.org/charterchapters.html 

And you can also ask questions here, and we can respond with explanations and diagrams.

I am new to bobbin lace, trying to teach myself but I still get confused by some things. I would like to find a teacher in my area but I don't know how to do that. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Comment by Nancy M. Terselic on September 1, 2014 at 5:32pm

Yes, the title on the Arizona site is Les Dentelles aux Fuseaux IIme Serie [Bobbin Laces, Second Series].

I have the German language version which was reprinted in toto back in the 1980s, so I always think of the tape lace book by its German title. The online one is French language, I think.

Comment by Nancy M. Terselic on September 1, 2014 at 5:14pm

Ah, found it.  I was guessing that was the book, based on the fact that Book 2 of that series is all tape lace (and Book 1 is all Torchon).  I was thrown off by the "Die Kloeppelspitzen" book title you listed in the instructions.  Thanks!

It is in Dillmont, Dentelles aux Fuseaux, series 2, part 5. It is the first lace in that part.   http://www.cs.arizona.edu/patterns/weaving/books/dmc_ldf2s-5.pdf  

I removed the zigzag braid edge to make the pattern a little easier.

Lorelei, you said this was from T. Dillmont's DMC book Die Kloeppelspitzen from the Arizona site?  I looked through all the Dillmont books on the lace pages and didn't see this one.

The pattern is very similar to pattern 5.12 in the Slovenian book Kelkljanje,  named Križčevke ali Križevke.
