Thank you for approving my membership, I will look more into your site and put pictures of my work , it may take some weeks because I am very busy now. Wishing to meet you in Lubliana or in Brugge some day. All the best
It is great to see you here and I certainly will watch for your post's in the future. The books that I have purchased from you plus the wonderful explanation are wonderful so many thanks for them. I look forward to receiving the books, I was so interested in the Kernel Stitch as I think it most unusual and love it.
Joy contacted me also privately (a fellow lacemaker of her too), very interested in kernel stitch. Yes, "kernel stitch" is the translation for "punto de piñón" in Spanish and it is one of the traditional stitches used in Hinojosa lace.
My books intended, when I first published them, later year 2001, to be progressive. So the first book "Witch stitch lace I" Spanish braid lace" include some of the stitches that were used for the patterns published inside that book. In the second one, "Witch stitch lace II",I added new stitches and variations, and into the third one "Special Fans" again were added new stitches.
In this last book appears "kernel stitch". In effect, the last pattern in the book is a fan made combining kernel stitch and halfstitch.
I am realizing that as this lace technique spreads all over, there is being more confussion about it, Sometimes as it was Milanese lace, and working it as it was, Other times the confusion is the way that the lace and or stitches are called, because of translations.
When I first published my pattern books, there was nothing on the market and nobody new about Hinojosa lace. Then, some years later other people has published books (from a bussiness point of view) and given courses, I have nothing to say of course, However the results that I appreciate in lacemakers, for example in Pinterest or Facebook is confusion. I am just a lace author of different lace techniques and specially Hinojosa lace and that is all.
Do you think that could be interesting to open a discussion about Hinojosa in order that members caught by this lace can put questions? I shall include some draws and tecnical specifications.
Thank you so much for introducing me to that Pinterest page - I can see me spending hours there... So much to look at and marvel, and such a wealth of ideas; and for me it's in essence a "how to" of design - I shall study and learn! Thanks again!
The problem was that I used to configure "my page" to show none of my activities out of some paranoid shyness. I hit the more button until there was no more, downloaded the page and hacked it. It I appeared to contain 78 messages in 8 discussions. That doesn't add up to the number of 53 discussions shown in the left column of "my page". I added the 8 discussions to my profile info.
Hello Lorelei, I wonder if you might consider establishing a group for IOLI Proficiency? This was suggested to me as a possibility you might allow, and was one of the reasons I joined laceioli.
My interest in the group is to encourage lacemakers who are doing a proficiency by providing a place to network. Hoping perhaps to attract not only those of us just beginning this challenge, but also those who have finished or those just thinking about it.
After reading the comments you posted on the first pictures I posted, I propose to proceed through the rest of my boxes of lace and when completed to come back and post more detailed close ups of those pieces of lace of which the pictures left uncertainty. I am also curios to know why it is that only you are commenting and none of the other members appear to take an interest to share their knowledge or impressions. The inputs from several would clearly be appreciated. I thank you for all the comments you already made and in advance thank for helping me out on the remaining lace pieces.
Again, thank you for all of your tutorials! They have been a blessing. I keep seeing that most people end their tape lacing with knots or plaits. I found this video on YouTube a while back, and this lady finishes off with weaving the ends... I am not sure where to share it, so I am just hoping you could look at the video, and see where would be the best place for it to be posted! Thank you so much. https://youtu.be/GHZcsqn4SiM
