RESOURCES FOR PAG NEEDLE LACE
To start, look for the black bar at the very top of the screen. On its right hand edge is a search slot, for searches that operate on our network only. Type in Pag and you will find the scattered discussions that have occurred before this Pag group was started. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuMHTNeUDrI&feature=youtu.be This is the Lacemaking in Croatia video that has informed the world about Pag lace. Only part of it is on true needle lace. It also contains bobbin lace, filet lacis and sol lace.
The basic elements of Pag lace:
The lacecorner site, from which we got our Pag elements has disappeared from the internet. A great loss.
This one shows the elements of Pag diagrammed:
This large site, in Croatian and English, has lots of photos

HOW TO MAKE PAG LACE:
Look at the DISCUSSION section below. Instructions for patterns 1 thru 3 are posted there as PagOne, PagTwo and PagThree. The images are presented there as sequential photos, one after another. They show the basic steps to laying a skeleton and connecting the parts. We have no verbal instructions - language problem - but the photos in sequence show each step in the process. There are over 200 photos covering the new elements in 3 pieces of lace.
I have also put these sequential photos into pdf files, which can be downloaded. You can access them here.
