What kind of needle lace do you make, and how long have you been making it?
Point de Gaze, Alencon, basic Point de Venise, all for over 20 years

Tell us about your other lace related interests.
I design my own lace, and especially love needle lace for the freedom of design it offers. I collect lace and have a decent cross-section of lace types, but especially of needle-laces. My lace collection is used not just to ooh-and-ahh over (though there's plenty of that going on), but to inform my lace designing as well.

hi Beth

My name is Raelene and I am living at Tuross Head, south of Bateman's Bay. I haven't started on any projects as yet but have been avidly perusing The Encyclopedia of Needlework by Therese de Dillmont. I am very keen to get started on a project but have an injured right thumb at the moment. Do you have any meetings of people who do Needlelace in Canberra that I might come to?

Regards

 Raelene

WELCOME.  Please read all the NOTES.  The policies are a little different from ioli, mostly in having a very narrow focus only on true needlelace.  Join whatever groups interest you.  If you have questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
