Profile Information

Your skill level
intermediate
What kind of needle lace do you make, and how long have you been making it?
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.

D. Paula Banerji, can you be more specific about what you mean by "last row" for Aemilia Ars lace? It will depend on the lace pattern, as to how it is made.
At 9:35am on February 4, 2019, D. Paula Banerji said…

I’m trying my hand at Amelia Ars lace and was wondering if there is a tutorial or video on how to do the dentelles on the outside, last row. Any help will be most appreciated.

thanks.

Hello Lorelei,  Thank you for writing to me.  Yes, I am working on a personal project of FILET GUIPURE on a very fine background. I do not have much time to work on it and it drives me crazy.  It is not the (lost) stitch that I am promoting in my book or my website for more than 30 years.  It is kind of my secret pleasure :-)  My FILET LACE BY THE SEA business is taking all my time and I'm not getting younger (energy).  We have to choose.    So to make me happy, I have decided to close my business and sale everything. Embroidery retirement... here I come!!  If you or others are interested in items on my website, please let me know.  There is more that is not posted yet, including antique tools, rare books, and lace collection. It is a treasure-box here!!  Best regards, Marie

Last night after midnight I received a very strange message on notifications from Mrs Cherish Herman, stating that she was a dying orphan and wanted to donate.....    I did not open the message to read more.  Her message did not show up on My Page or on the Main Page.  It also did not post in my private email.

I now have a notification that she has added me as a friend.  I checked her profile  and it says I must add her as a friend in order to view her profile.

This all seems very strange, and since the recent case with Willbi, I am concerned.

Has anyone else had strange messages from Mrs Herman?
