Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, the laces we include, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. I especially recommend the BEGINNERS group where you will find explanations of how to set up for making needle lace. That is the essential difference from embroidery. We also have free tutorials on this site, and links to other tutorials by our members. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
