"Thanks Eve, I will try anything, some suggested to stretch the thread before staring to work with it, I did that but it still twists so as the most twist appears in the double thread coming from the needle eye end I now stop to untwist that part…"

Joy, follow the instructions exactly and it will work.

" Go to MEMBERS On the left, just before the names start, is a search box. Do not type anything into the search slot.  Instead, Click on ADVANCED SEARCH. It will take you to a new page. At the COUNTRY slot, click on the down arrow, and select the country from the list. Then type in the city name in the city slot. Instead you can type in a state, such as NSW. Then go to the bottom of that page and click on SEARCH. The program will give you a list of members who fit those criteria. Maybe you can get together and work something out.  You can use this SEARCH function to find teachers in a particular geographical area."

I see by your web page that you live in Hastings. Hmmm! I am trying to think where would be a group close to you.  Mt. Eliza perhaps. Could you get there? I don't know of any others, unfortunately.

Is there an embroidery group near you? they sometimes have some knowledge of needlelace as some do Stumpwork, that has needlelace pieces in it!, - though not Oya!

You can find other members near you by doing a search on our members list.  Read the NOTE called "How the Software Works".  The search description is the last section of that NOTE.
