I'm not sure why but I'm always drawn to antique lace. I've always been a bit of an oddball with my activity choices, I'm usually the youngest person at groups for things like knitting, crocheting and yarn making related things that I've been to. Lace making is one of those things that I haven't been able to find in my area and I stumbled onto this site by Googling tutorials for how to make tambour lace actually. I want to learn more about different laces and how they are made because as a fashion major I love working with them and I want to learn more about them!

http://www.metmuseum.org/en/exhibitions/listings/2012/european-lace Since you are in West Bablylon, NY, perhaps you would be interested in seeing this display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Lorelei had listed it already in the Events section of this site, but this link provides more information. It will be on display until Jan. 13, 2013. For a person who is interested in how lace is made, the display is informative because it includes microscope images of the lace and details about the construction.
Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. We do have one for embroidered net, which includes both tambour and needlerun. If you have any questions contact me and I'll try to help.
Look at the opening page for the embroidered net group. There are several links to photos. Also look at this page in my personal website. I've collected some photos of the work in progress, to give an idea of how it is made.
