I have a relatively new website where I sell heirloom cotton lace and related products. I make porcelain antique reproduction dolls and found it difficult to get the nice cotton lace that is required for their clothing, thus my interest in starting a lace website. Also, I have acquired some very nice antique lace and a lady from the Metropolitan Museum of Art has referred me to your site as well as others for more information and for me to share photos of my pieces. I will do that in the near future.
Give us titles of lace books or articles you have written, that you want us to know about.
I am so happy you are going to share your pictures with us. I especially want to draw your attention to the piece posted yesterday about a set of lace placemats and runner featuring French Chateaux. I wonder if it comes from the same source as the runner whose picture you shared with me. This is so exciting!

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 IDENTIFICATION-HISTORY group. Please be aware that we do not include machine made lace of any kind as a subject for discussion. We are for all hand made laces. Take some time to explore our site. I also recommend that you look at this page of my personal website to get you started at identifying lace. http://lynxlace.com/kindsoflace.html If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
