Tell us more about your lace interests.
I learned lace grounds and made insertions and edgings as a teenager in conjunction with weaving lessons. My interest then turned to creating very large scale pieces with improvised bobbins and larger gauge threads. I also taught myself to knit lace patterns on size 35 needles. My mother taught me how to crochet fine gauge lace edgings as a child. Now returning to fiber arts with greater interest in fine gauge linen threads. It is time to dust off my Belgian lace pillow and perhaps make a new one. I have studied wood turning and can use my husbands woodworking shop to make tools.

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 BOBBINLACE BEGINNERS. Is this the sort of thing you are interested in?

If so, bobbin tape lace would be a good place to start.

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