"Carolyn I suppose it is possible that we are now the replacement for the Guild of Needle Laces. If so, that makes it more important for us to stay active and available."

"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. Carolyn"

Dutch translation help

I have a request: some help with translation of a Dutch text. I have a book by Jan Geelen on Rosaline bobbin lace. For most of the book I can just follow the diagrams. But the very beginning has a few pages where I need an accurate translation. I just don't trust google translate to do the job in any meaningful way. It is 4 pages -- actually 1 column from 4 different pages. If you can do a translation and have the time, I would be grateful.Please contact me privately by sending a "message" on…See More

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.

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

Thank you Lorelei for adding me to the group. I would appreciate it if you could change my name to Julie Santos Villegas (what I use on facebook). Julita is my full name but I am Julie for short. Thank you Lorelei.

Thank you Lorelei! This site is one of the most valuable places I can access places to learn bobbin lace making. I just figured out that my original posting that I thought was going to you, ended up being a Facebook posting instead! LOL! Had I known that, I would not have written something so long! LOL!
