Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. We do have one for BOBBINLACE BEGINNERS. Its opening page has a recommended books list, and links to good online information. On the gray bar above look for the TUTORIALS tab, and that will take you to the list of free tutorials on this site. I especially recommend Jo Edkins' site. It is mostly torchon, which is a good place for beginners to start. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
