Lisa

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 BOBBIN TAPE LACE which includes Idrijan and Russian, and one for CANTU. Post some photos of your best lace. I really like your "Night Jungle" rug. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
