Best Beginner Tape Lace

Holly Powers started this discussion a few years ago. I am just reposting it."I'd like to work on a simple tape lace project as a side project to start on a new form of lace in addition to working through the excellent "Visual Introduction to Bucks Point Lace" exercises by Geraldine Stott.I've heard of Schneeberger, Idrija, Milanese, Russian and Battenburg tape laces. For simplicity's sake and for greatest initial success, could you recommend any one of these tape lace types (or other tape…See More

Hi, I'm in 3 discussion groups: Beginner bobbin lace, point ground and one other. I don't understand why threads of the beginner bobbin lace continue going to my old Comcast email address, when I've moved, no longer use it, a D.C. changed it to a gmail address in my IOLI profile some time ago. Please let me know how this can be straightened out. Thanks! Holly Powers

Hello,
I'm not sure I know your name, but I have a few questions I hope you can help me with...First, if in settings I changed my email address zip code and city (moved from Washington state to Missouri), why am I still getting emails to Comcast vs. gmail, and the groups are showing I'm still living in Kent, Washington? Please advise on what I need to do to correct this. Also what is the difference between a group and the forum(s)? Finally--don't know if I should address this to you: if I want to become proficient in Bucks Point (in the IOLI program established), have no teacher or guild nearby, how is this accomplished. Or is proficiency merely for those who already are proficient in the lace but are certified? Thanks so much for all your suggestions and assistance. Holly Powers

Hello Lorelei, I have a couple of question: If my goals for the far future would make a peasant dress. Would I purchase a flat pillow with a roller or would you be able to use a bolster pillow?  If so would you use a large or small bolster pillow.  There are other equipment I am interested in, where can I learn more like what kind a lace would a Rue pillow make for me? What do different bobbins do.

Thank you so much!

Sandra

Thank you. I did join the bobbin lace beginners page and two others. My husband bought me a kit from snowgooselace for Christmas and I'm anxious to start learning how to use my new kit!

Thank you very much for accepting me here.  I am new to lace making, though, being Flemish I did try my hand at it a long time ago but did not continue.  I am very appreciative that I am able to avail of lace making classes on Gozo, in Victoria.  The other women are creating such wonderful works, the teacher is very helpful.  I'm enjoying this bobbin lace so very much.  And now I will explore this site as it look interesting.  To interact with other lace makers one can learn a lot and that's what I want to do.

Kind regards, Agnes
