Tell us more about your lace interests.
My late Auntie did what I think was bobbin lace on a pillow, but she died before I had a chance to learn from her. My grand parents and great auntie did all sorts of lace-looking pieces which also fascinated me. Now I am involved in Steampunk and would LOVE to learn these techniques to add to the other crafts I do.

The craft know-how of the Steampunk community is impressive! I know that TeslaCon in Madison, WI had a bobbin lace class and Victoiran lace panel (as in people talking, not a panel of lace) at it in 2011. But I have been surprised that there hasn't been more lace making among Steampunkers. Maybe I just don't move in the right circles to be aware of it. How are you planning to pursue your bobbin lace journey?
One suggestion would be to get in touch with the Lace Guild, since you are in the UK, and see if there are any local groups or classes that they could put you in touch with.
