"Elizabeth I used Lizbeth 20 col. 136. Your right using variegated threads is tricky and I usually avoid them but I have had some nice results with the Lizbeth ones."

"I Love this. What thread did you use?  The colours move along so nicely. Sometimes variegated threads move along too fast, or too slowly, but this seems to be just right."

I enjoy making traditional and contemporary lace. Experimenting, designing and playing with technique I am fortunate to be able to exhibit my work as part of The Westhope Group.
My favourite traditional laces include Bedfordshire, Point de Gaze and Venetian Gros Point and when I have the opportunity I love to see and study old pieces.

Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. With your interest in bibilla I suggest you also join another online network I administer, called needlelacetalk. http://needlelacetalk.ning.com    It has a group dedicated to OYA (another name for bibilla) and quite a few members have made much progress. http://needlelacetalk.ning.com/group/oyaturkisharmenianmediterraneanknottedneedlelace

Take some time to explore both networks. If you have any questions, contact me and I will try to help.
