"I am still learning as I go along!  Some of my choices of thread size for filling make the cordonnet bulky and then it stands out more than I intended when I cover it.  I have been leaving the lizard for last so that I make sure I've…"

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.
