Pag Lacemaking - learnings and questions

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…

Pag lace

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…

Best to just dive right in....

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…

Today I am switching to a different internet service provider. If t  here are glitches I may go silent for some time, until it gets straightened out. Just so you know.  The prospect freaks me out.

Sacramento - friday

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.

Sacremento - thursday

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.

Sacramento - tour day wednesday

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…
