Hi Anne 

Thanks for getting in touch. We have actually met on two occasions at the last two Xmas fairs, when you remembered me from the previous year! You are one of those people who have an excellent memory for faces.  Either that or I made an impression for all the wrong reasons....! I have bought one of your beautiful Needlelace pillows in central American mahogany and it is my constant aid. It helps so much in trying to achieve good tension and allows one to work easily with two free hands.Having an accessible base also enables me to transport more or less everything in the box. have to say doing Needlelace would be more difficult without it and I'm pleased to have it. I'm looking forward to seeing you again on the seventh. Kind Regards. Teri.

I am 73 years old today - but a very young 73 and started embroidery whilst very young at Convent school. but I have had a yen to do lace work.  I have done tennerrife and some insects. I have also done tatting which I learnt at the age of seven.  Must admit that I am more interested in needle lace although I have tried bobbin and found it quite simple but could not think of a thing to do with it when it was finished so gave my bobbins to a friend.

My embroidery has always been my  main concern.   Pulled and drawn thread work being the main interest.

So I am a bit perplexed as to why I have been contacted my Miss Stacy.

Do let me know.

Hi Anne,

I've lost the last copy of the message I was writing to you, I'm not sure if it arrived with you on is in the ether.

I'll start again.

As you can see from my discussions with Lorelei, I'm interested in learning a new skill.

I have been making needle lace with a cordinette for about 15 years as well as all sorts of other types of embroidery.

I want to make leaves to add to embroideries which do not use this method. It's partly so I can learn a new technique and challenge myself.

If you have any ideas I would love to hear them.

I've been practising Turkish knot lace and (I think it's Oya lace).

I've managed to get something that looks like lace and the tension is improving.

I've completed one half of a leaf, top or bottom, rather than a side by making a ring of 8 loops and working a triangle. I finished the side with with single knot stitches and picots. It looks reasonable but a bit loopy. I'll try to send a photo.

Any thing to help in my achieving my goal will be gratefully received.

I was given many years ago now 3 small squares of needle lace which was worked just in thread. It looks very like the square in the photos above. Its the one that has the same pattern in each triangle.

This has been a challenge to me over the years to find out what it is and how to work it. It now seems silly to me but I hadn't realised there was other types of needle lace apart from that work on a cordinette.

Just re read your message on my page, and it eas you that suggested writing for the magazine"!!! Sorry, had to try and remember what you'd written as they're on different pages!!! Very complicated!!!!

My eldest is 8 and at school, but then I have a 2 yr old and an 11 mth old.  Please do pass my name on to the chairman and I'll get my membership sorted on the 15th (husbands payday!)  Was it Elizabeth who has suggested writing something for the magazines as often as possible? I think thats a great suggestion.

Hi Anne, Not sure at the minute if I can make Cranmore Park, I have 3 small children.  I really want to got though so I'll talk nicely to my husband!  But now I know how to contact you I'm sure you'll be hearing more from me.  As I say, let me know if there is anything I can do to help the Guild.  Although I have the 3 children I'm a stay at home mum thats going a bit mental from doing nothing but changing nappies all day!

Regards, Emily

Hello Anne, Yes I am going to Pudsey so look forward to seeing you there. Vi tells me that you are bringing a pillow to the show for her and I would be very grateful if I could also order one. I used a pillow at the workshop I attended in Wales last week and found it extremely useful for keeping the tension correct. Do you also sell ring sticks? Looking forward to meeting you on Saturday. By the way ... the cat's paw belongs to my British shorthair Willow - just one of his beautiful features.

Hi Anne, I didn't even know there was a goldwork guild. I think I shall join the Needlelace Guild even though I'm not ready for any challenges yet! Is Needlepaws a shop and, if so, do you have a website? Also, would you bring me a box and the beginner's tool set to Pudsey please? It will save on the postage (which I can spend on more goodies).
