As to learning laces that would have been made in the 1700s and 1800s in Bedfordshire --- it would have been point ground lace in the earlier period and the lace called Bedforshire after c. 1850. We have groups that touch on all these: BEDFORDSHIRE, POINT GROUND LACES, IDENTIFICATION-HISTORY. Take some time to explore. If you have any questions about this site, contact me and I'll try to help.
