"I think 20th c bobbin lace is most likely. Possibly as recent as the 1920s. A part lace, wlith the dense clothwork motifs worked first, then the various fancy grounds added later. I won't venture a guess about the animals."

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY 

I am resolving to finish 2 projects I have set up. One is a Binche learning piece, which is quite difficult for me. I am intimidated by it. The 2nd is a floral Bucks which I intend to decorate a purse. (Enlarged and worked in thick thread so it will hold up to use) This one also intimidates me. I have been using my cat as an excuse, but he has calmed down.  I keep on thinking of simple projects that won't take a lot of…

Thanks for the intro. As I'm new to this I've always wanted to try bobbin lace, tried it. Did something wrong cause I ended up with a big knot so I just put it away. Now i see that bobbin lace has come back and with the marvels of technology I feel it is going to be much easier to learn.

Thanks, Lorelei, 

I was already on needlelacetalk, and didn't realize I wasn't fully subscribed to the entire site. I'm sad to see the end of the Guild of Needle Laces,  but hope something similar will take its place.

Hello Lorelei,

Thank you for accepting me onto the group. I'm just making a home made bolster pillow so I can start practicing and have been reading up as much as I can on the basics. I will read the posts suggested.

Again, thanks for having me.

Hi, Lorelei. It's a pleasure to say Hello. I feel very fortunate to find the page is still here. I'm going to be in touch more frecuently. I hope you are very fine.

Dear Lorelei, 

Thank you so much for accepting me as this group. My English is not very good. Thank you so much for the Turkish message you sent me. You are a very kind person :)

I want to learn, develop and teach this art unknown to my country. I hope I can.

If I can learn to learn and develop and teach others, I would like to invite you as my teacher already to join my exhibition :)

Thank you for having me here. Actually, I found your site while I was researching a small sample of genuine antique Irish Crochet I was able to purchase over the weekend. I will post photos and the story of how I came across this piece later, I have to leave the house shortly. I have just begun learning the Irish technique, I have 2 motifs from the book Irish Crochet Lace Motifs Collected And Described By Eithne D'Arcy. I need to get them posted at Ravelry and here; I am almost finished replacing the difficult edging on a 9 Ring Flower from Ms D'Arcy's book. My ambition is to produce a finished jacket, but I am very much just getting started.

It is an honor to be a part of this group, and I am excited to participate. I hope you are having a wonderful start to your week
