Storing lace

I have some lace pieces that I want to put away for now.  Some are too big to lay flat.  Obviously it's not good to fold them, but what do you use to roll them around that won't damage the lace…Continue

I'm having a terrible time finding linen in a high enough thread count in the color (close to DMC 738) that I'm trying to get for Lefkaritiko.  Would it be feasible/possible to dye white linen myself…Continue

"Ok, you've convinced me. I'll finish off the edges and borders and keep it as is. Elizabeth, I had intended for the center section to be more open.  I'm unhappy with it because it's so uneven.  I didn't really get…"

Elizabeth Ligeti replied to Trinity's discussion Needlelace Bookmark in the group Needle Lace
"Is your dislike of that centre section possibly because it is a much more Open stitch, where the others are more solid-looking? As a first piece, I think you are being a bit hard on yourself! If you started off doing perfect work - what else would…"
