Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
If you are in Paris on February 2-5, 2017, I will be teaching this Venetian needle lace creation at the Textile art show "Salon de l'Aiguille". It is a pin with small fruits, including strawberry, apple, and lemon: it has several Burano and Venice needle lace…Continue
I couldn't stand just working on 1 piece of Pag lace, so I have started an additional piece. The more I do of the lace, the more I am learning. That is the best part.
Learning tightness: it seems to me that there is a difference between the tightness one needs for laying the cordonnet for Pag lace vs. other needle laces. I don't have a great deal of experience with lots of other needle laces, so I could be wrong on that. What I do know, is that for Pag lace, the cordonnet needs to…Continue

The needle lace from island Pag in Croatia can find its origin among the accomplishment of the textile handicraft of the eastern Mediterranean area. One of the basic decorative forms of the original Pag lace is reticella. The women from…
I have been thinking and doing a lot of Pag lace recently. Before I wrote this, I looked up at comments on Pag lace. No, it is not easy to learn Pag lace. While I understand and respect that this is intellectual property of the people of Pag, I just want to learn how to make this beautiful lace. I do not want to profit in any way or take anything away from the wonderful people in Pag. Every since the first time I watched the video put out by Unesco and saw the women making this lace, I…Continue
It's been a long time since I worked on any lace. Actually, almost since I posted my last blog post. I have found that life just seems to get busy on me, and I get distracted with other art projects, commissions, and work. I was feeling…Continue

Sorry for the delay. Friday - last day of classes. I left feeling like I had learned a great deal but still a great deal to practice and learn. The banquet was very nice. The meal was delicious. I had the prime rib. The entertainment this year was a fashion show of lace from Lia Baumeiser-Jonkers collection. She certainly has some beautiful pieces. while the show was taking place, a woman was playing music from an electrical harp.
This was not an eventful day for me. after morning class, I called my teacher to tell her that I was not well and would not be coming. I spent the time sleeping. I did not attend the annual meeting at night as well. Maybe someone else has comments for that.
I had selected the tour for the Lace Museum and Lacis. Please forgive me, someone told me not to get too excited about the Lace Museum. so I was not. I was part of the group that went to the park first (Lace Museum too small to fit in all of us at once). while at the park I had a nice long chat with a new friend. then we were off to the Lace Museum. wow, I was so glad that my expectations were surpassed! ok, yes, it is a little small, but everything was so well displayed. I feel…Continue
