"I went to all of Lorelei's links. I think a lot of bolster pillows double for making bobbin lace & needle lace."

"I guess that wasn't quite clear. Anywho, the floss threader is a fine nylon thread with a loop at one end. I put my thread in the loop & then thread the beads on with the other, straight end & just push the loop through the bead, &…"

"About beads. I can get size 10 & even 11 seed beads on #20 & #40 tatting threads. This may work like some bead tatting where you put the beads on the thread before you begin, then push up the bead when needed. I use DenTek Floss Threaders…"

"I forgot to add that by holding the thread between the first & 2nd fingers as I pulled  the thread I avoided all twisting & knotting too soon problems. I did 2 sides of a hanky without any glitches at all."

"Thanks to everyone for your help!   I don't remember where I saw this maybe in a video. The lacemaker extended her first 2 fingers as she worked. She placed the thread up & over her first finger & held it between her first &…"

"Thanks Loretta! That makes sense. I was noticing the kinking, so I was letting the needle dangle. I'll look for the twisting the wrong way & pulling that final loop up above the other wraps. That must be what's happening."

"No luck with the video. I do have the instructions for the basic stitches, so I gave it a try yesterday. I started out ok, but suddenly the knot was tightening before all the thread was drawn up, so I was getting odd sized loops. What am I doing…"

Welcome.  Please go to NOTES and read them all.  They cover our policies, our territory, and the software.  We do have groups for OYA and for PUNCETTO, and you may wish to join both.  There are also albums where I have collected our photos of oya and our photos of puncetto.
