Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, the laces we include, and how the software works. Please be aware that torchon is a type of bobbin lace, and bobbin laces are not needle lace. You would probably enjoy another online network I created (also free to join) http://laceioli.ning.com which includes all handmade lace. It has a bobbinlace beginners group which would be helpful to you. If you have any questions about either network, contact me and I'll try to help.
