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…

Merci de votre accueil. Je dessine des modèles de dentelle aux fuseaux pour le plaisir. Je suis très intéressée par les travaux de Veronika.

Bonne journée!

Thank you for welcoming me to the group. This artifact, which was identified in the report as a bobbin, looked odd to me and I questioned whether it was actually a bobbin.  I did some additional research and it turns out to be a circa 1880-1900 bone sewing stiletto/awl.  It was found in Baltimore.  Thank you anyway and if we do find any bobbins, I will get back in touch.

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.
