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 think our BEGIINERS group, and our HISTORY-IDENTIFICATION group would best fit your interests. Once you learn the basics of how to set up, and create the scaffold for the stitches, you are then ready to go on. Most of us make our own designs or work modern designs, simply because the antique laces were so fine that enormous skill and far too much time went into every piece. Look through own photographs for inspiration. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
