Thank you.  Remember - it was your workshop in Melb, at the AGM many years ago, and I was just beginning the first piece inthe Catherine Barley book, and you kindly showed me a few things "that I would need when working that piece" that really set me to rights! I still have the notes you gave out!!. Your help was invaluable, and you really got me started on this never-ending Journey!

I have now recently discovered knotted lace, and had a class last year  with Elena, and now, through this site, discovered puncetto,to take my knotting further - and other goodies.  They certainly have led me astray - and I Love every minute of it!!!!!! :)

I hope you will be able to help some of our beginners here on the Beginners page, and on other pages. I love the way this is set up, so that you only need join the sections you are interested in. (I , of course, have joined them all!! - I am just plain Greedy!!! ) but it is such a wonderful resource and place for learning.  I enjoy helping others, and receiving help from others, too.

And the Photo page is great where we can see what others are doing, and also get photos of old lace to study.

Welcome.  Please go to NOTES and read them.  They cover our policies, our territory, and the software.  We do have an ALENCON group, that you may wish to join.  Although very few of us have enough experience or skill to try that form, there are a few.  Also, we have a few photos which you may enjoy.  Go to PHOTOS, click on ALL ALBUMS.  Just above the photos, on the right, is a slot SORT BY.  Click on ALPHABETICAL.  Look for an album called ALENCON NEEDLE LACE by Lorelei Halley.  It contains all the photos that any of our members have posted that pertain to Alencon.  You might also go to our ALENCON group and read all the posts from the beginning.  There is some discussion buried in there which you may find useful. 


I don't think any of us has gotten to Argentan yet.  You may stimulate interest in it.
