I only tried it out in the 1980s but did so badly I quit. I began again in 2010 with this group.
What kind or kinds of needle lace do you want to learn?
I will be happy just to make it neatly. Especially gros point and point de gaze. I also want to do my own contemporary designs.
Tell us about your other lace related interests.
I am an avid bobbin lacemaker and am interested in lace-like embroideries, especially pulled thread, Hardanger and other drawn thread embroideries. I am also interested in filet lacis and Teneriffe, altho I have not done any filet, and only tried out teneriffe. My laces are on my website, just a few pieces on flickr.

switching isp

Today I am switching to a different internet service provider. If t  here are glitches I may go silent for some time, until it gets straightened out. Just so you know.  The prospect freaks me out.

Lorelei, 

Thank you for the welcome.  I would love to join the other group as well.  I will chime in if I have something of value to offer, or if I have a pertinent question.  I was wondering now that people are a little more comfortable meeting in person, do you ever set up a time of getting together to chat and craft?

thanks for accepting me. I'm currently doing a city and guilds  course in hand embroidery and learning lots of diferent technniques that i have never tried  before including needle lace.  I'm throughly enjoying the needlelace and probably because I also do knitting I am understanding how the stitiches work.  I have to do some submission pieces to complete my course and I have ideas to include needlelace in my desighs.  I'm looking forward to fidning out more about the techniques

Hello there, Many thanks to you all for inviting me to join you.

You might say that I have a healthy obsession with the early laces of the Baroque period.

My greatest passion for the last six years has been in the historical study of laces (mostly bobbin) in paintings and rediscovering long lost stitches, drafting them and passing them on to my students.  

I am now at the stage where I need to embrace the fact that needle and bobbin laces in the past were often blended together within the same piece. I am positively itching to learn how to make some of these wonderful needle lace stitches  and hopefully incorporate them with my reproduction bobbin laces. 

So thank you very much for this opportunity, your lovely website is most inspiring.
