I have learned needlelace from books. I managed to get a workshop a couple of years after learning from a book, and that helped me progress, and then another workshop about 5 years ago for advanced learning, but mostly I just use books.
This Needlelace Talk site is excellent, and I suggest you start at the Beginners section, and do some of the pieces that Lorelei has put up, and we can all help you. You have certainly come to the right place!!
Once you get a good grounding , then you can progress quite quickly and try other needle laces. It is really just a matter of Lots of practice!!!

The Madonna in colored threads is really lovely.
