Welcome. Software and policies are similar to laceioli. But this group defines "needle lace" in a very narrow way. Post a picture of your 1st project. We would like to see. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.

Be sure to check out our tutorials. We have 2. Look at the gray bar above and click on TUTORIALS. We also have a BEGINNERS group.
