It took me a long time to find a group that wasn't knitting or crochet. I hope to see more activities and interaction here? Does the group think about having a Facebook presence or Instagram presence? It'd be a nice feature to see how many members are actively online like this one art board I used to draw and critique.

Your skill level
intermediate, teach needlelace
What kind of needle lace do you make, and how long have you been making it?
I make Turkish Needle Lace Flowers. They are incorporated into my jewelry and accessories.
What kind or kinds of needle lace do you want to learn?
If there's more styles and techniques any and all!
Tell us about your other lace related interests.
My main focus is on Igne Oyasi/knotted lace/bebilla. I have learned that to be the best at anything, you have to specialize in it. I used to draw, and now I just draw out patterns. My goal is to put out patterns in an easy to learn format and raise awareness for needle lace in English speaking countries like the US.
