Why do you make lace? What do you do with it?
8 Replies

Seems like a silly question, but it is one that I am asked all the time.  They ask "What are you going to do with that lace?".  I've given different answers until now I give the same answer.  For me,…Continue

Hey, Bus Buddy! I saw some of your lace and it is marvalous! I want to grow up and be like you. :)

Hi Linda, thank you for your friend invite. I still am a bit overwhelmed by all the nice comments I get.

If you find my work inspiring,  through your pictures I fell in love with Pag Lace. So very beautiful, different from reticello and aemilia ars, and yet.. I didn't know this kind of lace (there are so many) and I very very definitively want to try it. Your pictures will surely help me!! Are there any books you could recommend on the subject? I'm sure that here in this part of France, nobody ever heard anything about it.

Hello Linda, thank you for inviting me to be your friend!  I have looked at your photos and am in awe.  I hope with lots of practice I will be able to produce such beautiful pieces of needlelace.

Madame Dumas,
J'ai vu les photos que vous présentez. Je profite de l'occasion pour vous dire mon admiratin pour votre splendide travail. À bientôt

That would be great Linda.  I don't know anyone who share my interest in lace making, it will be nice to share with someone.  I just returned from Ireland was able to go the Kenmare lace and design center.  I was in awe of all the beautiful antique and modern day lace on display.  Now I want to learn it all!!  :)

Pag Lacemaking - learnings and questions

I couldn't stand just working on 1 piece of Pag lace, so I have started an additional piece.  The more I do of the lace, the more I am learning.  That is the best part.

Learning tightness: it seems to me that there is a difference between the tightness one needs for laying the cordonnet for Pag lace vs. other needle laces.  I don't have a great deal of experience with lots of other needle laces, so I could be wrong on that.  What I do know, is that for Pag lace, the cordonnet needs to…

Pag lace

I have been thinking and doing a lot of Pag lace recently.  Before I wrote this, I looked up at comments on Pag lace.  No, it is not easy to learn Pag lace.  While I understand and respect that this is intellectual property of the people of Pag, I just want to learn how to make this beautiful lace.  I do not want to profit in any way or take anything away from the wonderful people in Pag.   Every since the first time I watched the video put out by Unesco and saw the women making this lace, I…

Sacramento - friday

Sorry for the delay.  Friday - last day of classes.  I left feeling like I had learned a great deal but still a great deal to practice and learn.  The banquet was very nice.  The meal was delicious.  I had the prime rib.  The entertainment this year was a fashion show of lace from Lia Baumeiser-Jonkers collection.  She certainly has some beautiful pieces.  while the show was taking place, a woman was playing music from an electrical harp.
