Welcome. The policies here are basically the same as for laceioli, except that this site is narrowly focused on true needle lace. We do have a group for Armenian knotted lace, OYA. I also suggest the BEGINNERS group. We have several tutorials on this site, both photos and diagrams, and videos. Look for the gray bar above, click on TUTORIALS. Do some exploring and get started. If you have any questions contact me and I'll try to help.
