"In general the working order would be similar to that used in torchon. Prepare all the ground above a cloth stitch or half stitch area, as far as you can go. Then work the motif. Then the ground below the motif, etc. Lorelei"

"Thank you so much, Helen! My impatience is awesome at its best. I just need to get back in and focus, focus, focus, not worrying about the why's and wherefores, but just doing the lacemaking until it clicks. I appreciate your offer. :) Holly"

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

Thanks for letting me know about the FaceBook post. I tried to follow the link but the picture seems to be posted on a closed group of which I am not a member (or at least that is what the error message tells me) so I can't verify.

Hi Lorelei,

I wanted to say hello. I am back at Lace making. Thanks  for all you help. I hope you are doing well these days. The website looks great. How is the kitty? Think of you often. I will reach out soon. I know its been 2 years. -Elsie
