Question --- Is there a site that compares common characteristics of various laces? Will some differences are visible, others are not to me. What makes Burano lace different from Youghal etc....as an example.
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:( firstname.lastname@example.org) ) 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.
