Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
I will go to the PO on Monday to find out the cost of sending to the USA and the UK.
It will be quite a bit I imagine.
The current supply have been in isolation and I will wrap the book in several layers of plastic and paper
before putting into the mailing bag so the book will be quite safe for you.
I live in a semi rural area and so far the area has been untouched by this Virus so I know at least I am not sending
any nasties out into the…Continue

I haven't been in Needlelace Talk for a long time and I have forgotten where to go and what
to do. Anyway here goes... I have since written the Aemilia Ars book which looks quite nice as
it is A4 size and nice and glossy. $40 Australian but I don't know how much for overseas postage.
For any genuine buyers I can go to the PO and find out.
I am the Carer for a very sick frail husband and things are difficult at times.
I have another book called…Continue

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 points and stitches, including punto tondo (point mignon), my…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

PAG NEEDLE LACE
Tutor: Nedjeljka Uros, President of Society of Pag lace makers
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 particularly rotten the other day and just wanted to work on something for me, so I picked up this…Continue
