Just 2 days ago a new site started up for discussing all forms of handmade lace. It includes Limerick and Branscombe point. http://laceioli.ning.com Since it is also a ning based group, you can use the same email address and password that you use for NEEDLELACETALK.
Branscombe and Limerick are certainly lace, and are made with a needle. But for purposes of this network, needlelacetalk, they are not within my definition of "needle lace". My NOTE about HOW NEEDLELACETALK GOT STARTED explains why I define "needle lace" in a very narrow way.
Welcome. Please go to NOTES and read them all. They explain our policies, our territory, and how the software works. We do have groups for Oya/Armenian needle lace and for Halas, and you can join them if you wish. Join whatever other groups interest you. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
