Why do you make lace? What do you do with it?
8 Replies

Seems like a silly question, but it is one that I am asked all the time.  They ask "What are you going to do with that lace?".  I've given different answers until now I give the same answer.  For me, I am not able to paint, draw, do sculpture etc. …Continue

Thanks for the welcome and the correction. Good catch. Another consequence of shaky hands. Hopefully the shakes won't keep me from learning needle lace techniques.

Hi Linda, it will be like riding a bike and you'll have all that wonderful passion back. Happy lacing.

Hi Linda, thank you for your friend invite. I still am a bit overwhelmed by all the nice comments I get.

If you find my work inspiring,  through your pictures I fell in love with Pag Lace. So very beautiful, different from reticello and aemilia ars, and yet.. I didn't know this kind of lace (there are so many) and I very very definitively want to try it. Your pictures will surely help me!! Are there any books you could recommend on the subject? I'm sure that here in this part of France, nobody ever heard anything about it.

Hello Linda, thank you for inviting me to be your friend!  I have looked at your photos and am in awe.  I hope with lots of practice I will be able to produce such beautiful pieces of needlelace.

Madame Dumas,
J'ai vu les photos que vous présentez. Je profite de l'occasion pour vous dire mon admiratin pour votre splendide travail. À bientôt

That would be great Linda.  I don't know anyone who share my interest in lace making, it will be nice to share with someone.  I just returned from Ireland was able to go the Kenmare lace and design center.  I was in awe of all the beautiful antique and modern day lace on display.  Now I want to learn it all!!  :)
