"Thank you Devon for posting these interesting pieces of Milanese lace. It is amazing that it seems that some lacemakers have always felt the need to innovate and create new lace possibilities. I suppose this is what leads to evolution. In my recent…"

"Devon, I stayed in N.Y. for three days and just wanted to say hello. And yes, I wanted to mean “clasify”. This is what I think about the filling... Two pairs: Half knot with the inner threads, one twist every pair. This repeated three…"

Hi Carolina,

Would it be easy for you to buy another copy of the magazine's issue on Binche and send it to me? I can pay you for the magazine and postage in euros through PayPal.

I expect it wouldn't be easy, however, so can you send me the contact info of the publishers so I can try to buy a copy of this issue? my email is nancy.a.neff@gmail.com. I'm rather a Binche fanatic so I really want a copy of this issue. :-)

Thank you!!

-- Nancy

I to thank you and the other's for opening up a discussion on Hinojosa lace.  I went to your site and saw the books, but am still undecided as to which one I should get first as a beginner.  I didn't do a lot of searching yet, but I don't remember seeing prices listed either.  I was in a hurry.  I don't know where you are in comparison to Roseground, but I'm wondering about the S&H on books from you.  I've ordered from Roseground before and didn't fine the S&H that bad.  I'm hoping you can help me out here.  By the way, a nice site you have...!

Your explanation about Hinojosa and your booklets was very interesting and very useful. I think your idea about opening a discussion is a good one. I am going to start a DISCUSSION in the BOBBIN TAPE LACE group. Perhaps it will help clarify  things.

Today I received an email from Joy McKenzie who is asking about "kernel stitch" used in Hinojsa (I believe). I have one of your booklets on that style, but that particular stitch does not appear among the few named stitches in your book. (SPANISH BRAID LACE "WITCHSTITCH". I am hoping there is a larger repertory of stitches, including this one she is trying to find out about.  Can you tell me how it is made, or do any of your laces posted here contain that stitch?

Thank you Carolina.    I made a copy of your picture of the EB, so I can make my own from that.  I will look forward to making it.  It's been awhile since I made lace and this will be good to begin again.   I love your lace photo's.  You do wonderful work.

Thanks again,

Ellie

Hola Carolina,

ya he añadido mi primera foto, se trata del árbol de navidad que he diseñado para este año.  La Dolors ha creado otro diseño, para el mismo árbol, cuando tanga la foto la colgaré.

Encantada de saludarte. Por cierto ya he empezado a manejar el programa Lace8 a partir de los tutoriales que hay en youtube de Jenny Brandis. Cuando nos veamos ya te diré como me va.
