Thank you. It's a little mind boggling to find a group that is interested solely in needlelace. I do teach occasionally here in Austin, mostly Whitework and simple lace techniques. Y hands are becoming quite arthritic, so surface work is difficult, but I do want to continue exploring this fascinating world.
Thank you for your welcome. I am such a beginning beginner - still trying to find out, which techninques for lacemaking my granny might have used. I am quite sure, she knew different ways, and sometimes might even have combinded them. Some pieces i saw where more like your samples here than like other techniques, that i will try out as well. I hope i manage to learn it without her help. First videos here are very helpful to me. Thank you for your great work and teaching. It means a lot to me.
Hi Lorelei, I just wanted to alert you to a message that I received in my profile and it is obvious that it is a scammer preying on people, most likely to steal identities or con them out of money. The name that shows up is stela kwale, supposedly from Ghana. The message is this:
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( email@example.com) ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
I have been online for enough years to recognize cons when I see them. Please alert people to NOT fall prey to these requests. I worry that someone else will believe this criminal and loose a lot of money.
If you google Stella Kwale you will see that this name is associated with money scams and is used a lot in multiple sites.
Hello there :] I've been browsing the site and forums anonymously for about a week and I read the notes and found the exclusivity to be refreshing. I'm always hearing about bobbin lace, but less about needlelace specifically.
I'm new to all this and will probably ask a lot of questions for a while, so please bear with me :] Everyone here seems so advanced and I'm excited to learn.
Thank you for allowing me to join. I am an embroiderer but have always loved The look of the 16th century onwards laces such as reticella. I await a book on reticella from Italy, and found this community whilst googling reticella.
