Hello

I just wanted to introduce myself to the group. My name is Cathy Wesemann and I'm from the Belleville, IL area (right across the river from downtown St. Louis, MO). I just started to learn bobbin lace. Back in October, my husband and I went to the Kansas City, KS Renaissance Faire. They have a group there that practice bobbin lace, tatting, crocheting, knitting and spinning. I was invited to try my hand at bobbin lace and enjoyed it so much that I asked my husband for a kit for Christmas (which…See More

Hi Cathy,
My husband and I just moved to the St. Louis County area about 5 months ago. We live in Chesterfield. I've been searching for bobbin lacemakers. I've tatted for over 25 years. I hope we can meet up some time. Of course, you've probably discovered the Heartland Lace Guild, which meets once per month in Paducah, KY, not all that far from you.

There are several ways you can start to learn bobbin lace, using material available directly on this site. The BOBBINLACE BEGINNERS group has a list of recommended books.  http://laceioli.ning.com/group/bobblinlace-beginners/page/recommended-books 

There are also links to Jo Edkins' site, which concentrates mostly on torchon, and has animated stitches.

 http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/lace/index.htm 

There are also some braided lace lessons, which I wrote. Links are there.

Start with a strip of cloth stitch, half stitch and ctct.
