A facebook page with albums of Irish crochet, showing sequential photos of working some motifs. Might be useful as a learning tool.

There are still a couple of seats left in Maire Treanor's Clones Irish crochet class at the Winter Lace Conference, Feb 13-15 in Costa Mesa, CA. All are welcome. There is a little feature about Clones Lace and Maire Treanor on the International Organization of Lace's Facebook page. You can find details about the Winter Lace Conference and registration materials at this place:

A woman, Lusine Vrachkov, posted some photos of her recent Irish crochet work. I have it on one of my pinboards.

I've been checking into all that has been posted about about Irish Crochet.  Some very beautiful work has been done out there.  

Sorry I haven't posted more sooner, but I just got done fighting the 'Hives' for over three weeks.  Finally gone, but still don't know what caused them..

I'll keep checking all the is posted about this beautiful form of lace making.

Thank you.  I found the book plus a couple more.  I hope I have good luck with them.  I don't know French, but with some of the diagrams and help from a friend of mine, just maybe.  Thanks so much.  I now have quit  a collection.
