What kinds of lace do you make or collect?
I am very much a beginner, although lace has fascinated me most of my life. I have begun collecting lace-samples & finished pieces. Right now, I am still teaching myself to crochet various types of lace.
What kinds of lace do you want to learn?
I am interested in learning to create so many types of lace & am such a beginner that I cannot seem to narrow my focus yet. I think I would like to learn bobbin lace, needle lace, and broomstick lace next. It has been difficult, as there are no lace groups/classes-that I have been able to find-where I live. Teaching myself has been fine so far, but now I am having questions, etc. I would really like to be able to attend some classes, or get together with someone who shares my interest & knows what they are doing! I hope becoming involved with this group will help!
Tell us more about your lace interests.
I have loved lace since I was very young-I always thought it so beautiful & could stare at it for hours wondering how all the various types were made.
When I taught myself to crochet, I immediately gravitated toward lace. As I have moved along in learning to crochet lace, my interest in the evolution & history of lace opened up--which then piqued my interest in learning about all types of lace.
Simply put: lace, in all of its variations, fascinates me!

If you look at the link to online resources you will find a link to ravelry. This is an online network that specializes in knitting and crochet. There is a very active Irish crochet group. Unfortunately you can't see anything on their site until you join. But joining is free. Some might think it odd that I pass on a link to another site. But they do better with Irish crochet than we do -- they have the numbers of members to make it work. My focus is fostering the lace making interests of our members, not jealousy about other sites.
