Tell us more about your lace interests.
I'm a frustrated lace making student. There are no schools in my part of the country and there certainly isn't anyone at my local hobby store or fabric store who can show me.

Hi Christy-lee....back in 1986 or 88 there was a convention held up in Racine, WI, where I used to live.  My husband suggested I go. I came home and told him to please remember that it was his fault insisting that I go.  I got hooked on Hardanger, Tatting and Bobbin Lace. I went to the Hardanger which I love to do and then the tatting also.  The bobbin lace was slower for me to start, but once I did...I was hooked. I was only introduced to that one time, but I'm afraid that it didn't hold my interest.  I just found this:

Limerick lace is an embroidered needle lace made in Limerick in Ireland. It is formed on a mesh using one or both of two techniques: Tambour – where chain stitch is created using a hook.

Here is a place I go looking for things all the time.  I found this on the Limerick lace.  This is very pretty to.  Good example.

Hi Christy-lee.  Glad to see another person interested in the arts of lace.  Here's hoping you learn something or maybe...teach us/me something new.  Hope you enjoy it here.

Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. (The NOTES explain how to do that.) We do have a group for EMBROIDERED NET, which includes Limerick. 

I very much doubt you would be able to find a class in this form of lace anywhere in the U.S.  That is why I started this site, so that interested individuals can, at least, contact other people who may know where to start looking. The opening page of the EMBROIDERED NET group has lots of resources listed, photos and links to good online information. I think the first problem to solve is how to set up a piece of work. And I have looked for photos showing the work in process, so you can see how others are managing. Look in the 2nd column, under the icons of members for several PAGES. These all have links. Also check out my pinterest board, which has some stitches and photos of work in process. 

There is actually a lot of information online. And if you follow through and search through all of it, you will understand how to start. Please keep us posted on your progress. Each enthusiastic practitioner encourages others to try the same thing.

If you have any questions about this site, contact me and I'll try to help.
