Thank you for your welcome, information and suggestion. I am fairly new to steampunk circles, but getting more interested as time goes on. I am not aware yet of anyone making lace, but will search and pursue :)
Looking forward to learning anyway and meeting you all here.
John C. Campbell Folk School. Sorry it took so long to answer you. Still trying to get into the rhythm of this wonderful site.
My bff and I will be coming to Lace Day on Saturday. What time does it start ? We will be coming from Long Island so I will just mapquest the directions. In fact my gf knows that area from doing resets at the local Stop and Shop.
Thanks Devon! It has been a very bumpy ride but we are almost there... I hope that now that things are in place next time will be easier and hopefully it will encourage more young people to make lace! Let's hope!!
Devon, I can't tell you ho much I appreciate all of the information you sent me. I was planning to reply but I can just reply here! I will take your advice about ignoring spam too. I'll try to get those pictures on here in the next day or two - have a lot of appointments today. Yes, I did see the photos of the work showing the French Chateaux and it is fascinating! Also, the work does look a lot like the work in my pieces.
I need to learn more about handmade lace because I do offer some antique/vintage pieces on my website, but nothing like these special pieces that I have.
I got in touch with the church that actually wrote the article. and they dont know. i talk to a relative in florida and the her story was it went to st. pats in nyc then donated to a museum that later closed. i email st. pats about the story. Lucy had no kids. She was also mentioned in Mccalls mag. which i have purchased. that has her other tatting in it.
Jo I had thought you might have more contact with individual students. What might that will use Devon's ideas as well, would be for me to start a discussion which will include Jo's url in its description. And I'll explain how anyone who wants help with her lesson material can put the questions there. Once I get it set up, you might want to put a direct link to that particular discussion onto your website, inviting those using your work to ask their questions in our discussion area. This is an opportunity to CREATE more back and forth with students using your site.
Welcome. Please read all the NOTES, which explain our policies, and how the software works. Join whatever groups interest you. Post some photos of your lace. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
