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

Every since the first time I watched the video put out by Unesco and saw the women making this lace, I…Continue

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
