my needle lace

"I'll definitely post when it's done =)  I'm working on a piece right now that I'm hating, so it might be sooner rather than later, if I decide to scrap it.  "

my needle lace

"This was also my first needlelace project.  I think it looks great, and exactly how it should for your first piece.  It's all about practice and the thread you use, so it's definitely going to get better from here on out.  I…"

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 especially recommend the BEGINNERS group. Its opening page has lists of resources, both online and books. We also have written tutorials and a set of tutorial videos. Look through all that material and then start asking you questions. Needle lace is very versatile and you can make delicate traditional looking lace, or go for a modern and impactful effect.  

There is also another online network that I administer, which includes all handmade laces. It is also free to join. You might like that one also.


If you have any questions about either network, contact me and I'll try to help.
