Your blog, if you have one

Tell us more about your lace interests.
I am an amateur lace maker. I learned to tat as a child and I learned to make Bobbin Lace through the Ottawa Guild of Lacemakers. I have worked as an assistant editor on the Canadian Lacemakers Gazette for a few years (a long time ago now). Currently, I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science and I am looking at ways of applying Math and Computer Science to the patterns in Continuous Bobbin Lace. I would really welcome the opportunity to discuss these ideas and my findings with experienced lacemakers.
Give us titles of lace books or articles you have written, that you want us to know about.

Thank you Veronika for accepting me as friend.

As I promised it, I continue to translate Jo's site but I have some, but not too grave, personal marigolds to be settled.

Cordially.

Guy.
