"Does anyone know what's happened to the Guild of needle laces website? It's been inaccessible for the past couple of days with no explanation given. Could it be a temporary webhosting blip, is the website being revamped, or .....?"

"thanks again, Loretta. I did notice my practice thread twisting - it made pulling through for the knot more tricky too. I sometimes wax my threads for embroidery, is this ever done in lace making?"

"Hi Loretta, yes, we do have a supplier who stocks Lizbeth #20 and #40 - I noticed it while I was looking for a tatting shuttle there - so I can kill two birds with one stone ;-) Adele, when I first saw a photo of Armenian lace a few years ago (with…"

Hi,

thank a lot for your comment and sorry for late response. I know how to tat till I was on basic school, so more then 20 years - but there weren't so much tatting patterns in our country and I did other needle works too, so I didn't tat very often. I must admit that I don't do needle-lace now and I don't read this forum, because I can't find any time for it. Thanks for info about group with tatting, I will check it. I love tatting forum www.intatters.com/forum.php - try it if you don't know it.

Have a nice day ;-)

Laylah Welcome. Please go to NOTES and read them all. They explain our policies, our territory, and how the software works. This network is only for true needlelace, which includes Armenian needle lace. However you might like to know that a new internets group just started last week, for discussion of all forms of handmade lace (which includes your shuttle tatting, knitted lace and crochetted lace.  It is called ioli.

http://laceioli.ning.com        Since it is also a ning-based group, you can use your same email address and password that you used for needlelacetalk.
