Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. We do have groups for bobbinlace BEGINNERS, and for LACE IDENTIFICATION AND HISTORY. The opening page of that group has a book list and a link to online sources that can help you learn lace identification. Take some time to explore our site. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
