Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
For my second try, I decide to eschew pins in favor of a temporary frame of threads. When I'm done, I'll cut the framing thread from the back to release the lace.

That was my experience... I was afraid the pins would pull out and I'd lose the loops of the spokes! Another thing that I wasn't expecting was how the knots and needleweaving gradually tighten the spokes against the framework, so the whole thing is quite taut. When I released the lace, it shrank! So the lesson is that you don't have to pull the spokes too tight in the first step, because they'll tighten up as they get manipulated and knotted together.
Another method. I have heard some say that the pins-around-the-edge method is annoying because the thread keeps catching on the pins.
