Sorry that you can't come. This will be my second one--the first was at the end of October and I did my first little round border. I'll need to get my phone camera fixed to show you all about it--it's not working for some reason.
I can't remember where I found my corner that I used for my icon. I must have taken a photo of it because there are words above it on my saved phone-photo. I may have gotten it here, on Pinterest or just googling Binche photos...I'm a little obsessed with finding new and interesting examples. :)
Thanks very much for the welcome! I'm so glad you're also learning Binche--it's my absolute favorite. I'm going to a workshop in Michigan with Kumiko February 17-22 for Binche, so please feel free to join if you can--would love to meet you.
Thank you very much fro the approval! I'm a Vologda Lace Maker, and found a picture of a Torchon Lace, but I have no idea how to start. How can I find somebody who can help me answer my questions? Can I put picture of lace that I found? It's not mine, and it doesn't says who's lace it is, or I would ask owner directly...
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.
