Thanks for the intro. As I'm new to this I've always wanted to try bobbin lace, tried it. Did something wrong cause I ended up with a big knot so I just put it away. Now i see that bobbin lace has come back and with the marvels of technology I feel it is going to be much easier to learn.

Thanks, Lorelei, 

I was already on needlelacetalk, and didn't realize I wasn't fully subscribed to the entire site. I'm sad to see the end of the Guild of Needle Laces,  but hope something similar will take its place.

Hello Lorelei,

Thank you for accepting me onto the group. I'm just making a home made bolster pillow so I can start practicing and have been reading up as much as I can on the basics. I will read the posts suggested.

Again, thanks for having me.

Hi, Lorelei. It's a pleasure to say Hello. I feel very fortunate to find the page is still here. I'm going to be in touch more frecuently. I hope you are very fine.

Dear Lorelei, 

Thank you so much for accepting me as this group. My English is not very good. Thank you so much for the Turkish message you sent me. You are a very kind person :)

I want to learn, develop and teach this art unknown to my country. I hope I can.

If I can learn to learn and develop and teach others, I would like to invite you as my teacher already to join my exhibition :)

Thank you for having me here. Actually, I found your site while I was researching a small sample of genuine antique Irish Crochet I was able to purchase over the weekend. I will post photos and the story of how I came across this piece later, I have to leave the house shortly. I have just begun learning the Irish technique, I have 2 motifs from the book Irish Crochet Lace Motifs Collected And Described By Eithne D'Arcy. I need to get them posted at Ravelry and here; I am almost finished replacing the difficult edging on a 9 Ring Flower from Ms D'Arcy's book. My ambition is to produce a finished jacket, but I am very much just getting started.

It is an honor to be a part of this group, and I am excited to participate. I hope you are having a wonderful start to your week

Thank you Lorelei for adding me to the group. I would appreciate it if you could change my name to Julie Santos Villegas (what I use on facebook). Julita is my full name but I am Julie for short. Thank you Lorelei.

Thank you Lorelei! This site is one of the most valuable places I can access places to learn bobbin lace making. I just figured out that my original posting that I thought was going to you, ended up being a Facebook posting instead! LOL! Had I known that, I would not have written something so long! LOL!

Hi, I'm in 3 discussion groups: Beginner bobbin lace, point ground and one other. I don't understand why threads of the beginner bobbin lace continue going to my old Comcast email address, when I've moved, no longer use it, a D.C. changed it to a gmail address in my IOLI profile some time ago. Please let me know how this can be straightened out. Thanks! Holly Powers

I'm not sure I know your name, but I have a few questions I hope you can help me with...First, if in settings I changed my email address zip code and city (moved from Washington state to Missouri), why am I still getting emails to Comcast vs. gmail, and the groups are showing I'm still living in Kent, Washington? Please advise on what I need to do to correct this. Also what is the difference between a group and the forum(s)? Finally--don't know if I should address this to you: if I want to become proficient in Bucks Point (in the IOLI program established), have no teacher or guild nearby, how is this accomplished. Or is proficiency merely for those who already are proficient in the lace but are certified? Thanks so much for all your suggestions and assistance. Holly Powers

Thank for letting me become a member of the group! I am real eager to learn!

Hello Lorelei, I have a couple of question: If my goals for the far future would make a peasant dress. Would I purchase a flat pillow with a roller or would you be able to use a bolster pillow?  If so would you use a large or small bolster pillow.  There are other equipment I am interested in, where can I learn more like what kind a lace would a Rue pillow make for me? What do different bobbins do.

Thank you so much!
