"Dee, For just starting out, your sample looks very good!  I would suggest angling your pins away from the lace so that you can tension against them. (see photo link)  The rest is just going to be a question of practice…"

"Not yet...but am getting some spangled...or actually to spangle...the ones that came with the kit are not drilled.... I do like the idea of the spangles to give them weight for tension....the bobbins I have are very light weight...I figured they…"

"Welcome to the addictive world of Bobbin Lace!  I see you purchased the Lacis kit; it's not bad for just starting out, although I find the foam pillow a bit too thin (although it does fit into my airplane carry-on!) and the bobbins too…"

Dee Dove replied to Dee Dove's discussion Hello all.... in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"I have a question.... I have watched a video on YouTube.... Redcardinalcreations.... She states to start each stitch by using a twist... Then cross twist cross... Then the twist... Then CTC ... Is this the tctc that I see references to as opposed to…"

Jo Edkins replied to Dee Dove's discussion Hello all.... in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"I notice that your bobbins aren't spangled (having those attractive beads on). The beads aren't necessary and spangling is a bit of a nuisance when you're aching to get started! So use them as they are. You can always spangle them…"
