Nancy M. Terselic commented on Administrator's group Bobbinlace Beginners
"I, too, understand.  I taught myself bobbin lace from books (and using Jo's site)since I could find no teachers.  I love connecting with other lacers and can do so a couple times a year at different events we travel to (nothing local…"

"Jo, your website has been translated into at least a couple different languages online.  I don't know if you did this, or if other have, but you might be able to augment your glossary by looking at those sites.   Also, Gertrude…"

Nancy M. Terselic commented on Administrator's group Bobbinlace Beginners
"Fans are fun!  I don't know if this is similar to the one you're working on, but perhaps this will help you see how they come together.  The pink pair are the workers, and I traced their path in purple (ignore the pink at the…"

Nancy M. Terselic replied to Joseph's discussion Travel Pillow. in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"I travel with my bolster pillow frequently, but I just put it to bed with a cover cloth and elastic band to hold the cloth and bobbins in place, and carry it in a fabric market basket.   I also have a large cookie that came with a…"

Nancy M. Terselic replied to Eva Francis's discussion Home spun thread? in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"I understand about having a lot of irons in the fire.  They say that you cannot die until you complete a certain percentage of the projects you begin.  If that's true, I'm immortal! I, too, love colors.   While I…"

Nancy M. Terselic replied to Eva Francis's discussion Home spun thread? in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"I tend to spin very fine as well, although I'm planning to use some handspun wool as gimp in a piece soon.  If history is what you are after, try finding some flax to spin.  It takes a different technique than cotton or…"

Nancy M. Terselic replied to Dawn Ellis's discussion What is the english name of this ground stitch? in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"Dawn, do you mean the open squares / grid-looking area?  If so, that's known by a few different names depending on which book you're reading or who you ask -  double stitch, whole stitch and twist, cloth stitch and twist, whole…"

Nancy M. Terselic replied to Jo Edkins's discussion Working a stitch in the hands rather than on the pillow in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"Depending on the pattern I'm working, it's not unusual for me to be putting sets of bobbins over the back of my bolster to keep them out of the way while I'm working a different section.  I can keep them in order…"

Nancy M. Terselic commented on Administrator's group Bobbin made tape laces (braid laces)
"Good news! The Bridget M Cook and Metka Tratnik book Idrija Lace has been reprinted!  It's been out of print for a while, and used copies on Amazon have been running about $350 USD.  I just received my copy, which was £31.50…"

"Beautiful!  I love your choice of colors.  It looks like you used 18 pairs, correct?  What was the finished length and width?"

Nancy M. Terselic commented on Administrator's group Bobbinlace Beginners
"Wow...just wow on the tallies.   Like many lacers, tallies are my bane (them and picots).   I do mine on the bolster, too, but I just cannot get them to come out right.  I am interested in the fact that she really…"

"Oooo!   Book 4 is about Insertions and Borders!   This is going on my gift wish list right now!"

Nancy M. Terselic commented on Administrator's group Bobbin made tape laces (braid laces)
"Wow, those collars are something else.  Such beautiful and even picots!  I'm really impressed by the two that have a geometric design (#4 in the series and #10).  That's some tight, even plait work."

Nancy M. Terselic replied to Linda Dumas's discussion question about making lace on bolster pillow in the group Bobbin made tape laces (braid laces)
"I like to look through the lace photos on mojalbum.com:  Klekljanje   Ladka, My family is originally from Vihre and I still have cousins down there and in Ljubljana.  Unfortunately, it's been 7 years since I was last in…"

Nancy M. Terselic commented on Administrator's group Bobbin made tape laces (braid laces)
"So I tried working those corners with the Cluny method you described (no pin, just lots and lots of tensioning) but it was still not coming out the way I wanted.   The 3rd pair's double twists were getting lost in the center of the…"

Nancy M. Terselic replied to Linda Dumas's discussion question about making lace on bolster pillow in the group Bobbin made tape laces (braid laces)
"My kitchen scale stops at 16oz and my bathroom scale isn't fine enough... if I had to guesstimate, my pillow with a few pairs of bobbins hung on it is no more than 4-5 pounds, max.  Probably closer to 3-4.  Not as heavy as a 5lb bag…"

My family is from the country of Slovenia, which has a rich history with bobbin lace. In addition, I am a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism and through that a fiber artisan. After years of wanting to learn, I taught myself bobbin lace last year with the help of some books and websites, and it has become a wonderful obsession. I am just a beginner still, and look forward to learning more from the ILOI community.

Nancy: to add a photo from your photo album to a comment box, do this.

Go to the photo, click on VIEW AT FULL SIZE.  When just the photo is on your screen copy the url.

Go to the comment box, click on the IMAGE icon (2nd from left). It gives you a choice of selecting an image from your computer, or from the internet.  Click on FROM A URL. Paste the url into the slot. (Be sure that the http:// appears only once.) It will give you options about positioning the photo, but you can just ignore that part. Click on SAVE.
