Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. I especially recommend the BOBBINLACE BEGINNERS group and the TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT group. We have some written tutorials on this site, and the BEGINNERS group opening page has links to some good online sites, and also recommended book lists. Take some time to explore. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
