Make, learn and talk about needle lace.

Hello all my Pag Lace friends. I am trying to get out to you something that you can follow to make this wonderful lace. I have started today with the following:
1. I have copied from Lacecorner.com the different stitches. What my intention for that photo album is to add directions on to each stitch.
2. I have had questions on my lace pillow. I added an album to show the steps that I followed to make my lace pillow. It doesn't really matter what kind of pillow you use,…Continue
So it is a week later. I'm home and have caught up on my sleep. It is now time for me to really know that it is all over. So I thought I would put down my final thoughts:
I would say that the highlight of my week is being with wonderful people who really get me...because they are just like me. Who in your everyday life would be excited about a new way to make a lace stitch? You won't see it on the news, you won't read it in the papers, but to you and me, it is a big…Continue
The friday night banquet.... we had a ticket for a surprize gift. what was it going to be? It was a wooden bobbin stand. I'm so sorry, I don't know who gave it to us. Maybe someone can update me so I can say who. I didn't keep mine. I have one and my friend's sister didn't have one, so I gave mine to her. It was a wonderful gift though.
Everyone was dressed in their fine attire. Lace and all. Another gift was the centerpiece. It was 3 wire mesh bells with things underneath. …Continue

We are up to wednesday night. At 6:00 there was a lecture from Ulrike Voelcker which was very entertaining and informative. It was all about a Lace that she discovered that was previously not known by the lace world. The funny part was that she took her dog and she took lots of pictures of the dog. She is a good speaker.
then the Shuttle Brothers were entertaining us with the Tat Off. I've never seen anyone tat with rope before. They were very funny. And they had a tatting…Continue
Monday night was the Teacher's showcase. The big ballroom was used so there was plenty of room for everyone. Of course, this was wonderful. The only downside is that you see even more lace that you want to learn. (not a bad thing).
Tuesday lunch was wonderful. Once again, the lunch itself was good and it was nice to gather with friends. There were more gifts given out.
Tuesday night was the annual meeting. This went well. The big thing was the reveal of the new logo…Continue
Sunday morning started registration. That was very organized. I got my bag and there were lots of goodies in there. A container of salt(because of salt lake city), pens, pencils, a little square that was embroideried all around that when used helped to grab a needle, candy (salt water taffy), needle threader, and well I don't know what you call it, it is a cloth that you soak in water and put around your neck when it is hot, and lots of other things that I can't remember.
Here I am again. My afternoon class MTTF was
P218 Venetian Needlelace (Bart Elwell)
This lace is often made up of stylized images, which have outlines that are
emphasized by high relief padding. It is created completely with needle and
thread upon a temporary foundation. There are many aspects of this lace that
make it a desirable technique. Most of the stitches are simple variations of the
buttonhole stitch. It can easily be carried along and…Continue
Let's talk about my first class. It was MTTF AM.
A120 Romanian Point (Sylvia Murariu)
Peaceful Dove design. A dove draws a smile whenever we see one, for it is a
symbol of hope, peace and love. The Romanian Point Lace dove was created to
stimulate these positive feelings. It makes a wonderful ornament, to hang in the
window or on a tree. It can also be used as an elegant embellishment for a fancy
dress or jacket. Design size 8 and 3/4 by 5 and 1/2…Continue
It was the best time I've ever had. Between the classes, the beautiful mountains, and the wonderful women I met, it was the best time ever!
It was held at the Sheraton Hotel. What I liked most about the hotel was the lobby space. There was so many places to sit and talk with folks. And some wonderful chairs that rocked. I found myself there after classes, tired and it was nice to sit in them and rock.
As an east coast girl only drinking Dunkin Donuts coffee, drinking…Continue
