Your skill level
teach needlelace
What kind of needle lace do you make, and how long have you been making it?
I have attempted needle laces such as basic Venetian style, Renaissance, Point de Gaze, Gros Point, Halas, Sol and Knotted needle lace for the past 10 years.
What kind or kinds of needle lace do you want to learn?
I particularly want to work out the difficulties I have with knotted needle lace.
Tell us about your other lace related interests.
My interest in lace started as a young girl starting with crochet and tatting. Later in life I tackled bobbin lace, wire bobbin lace, Sol laces, Greek finger lace, and the needle laces. At The Lace Museum in CA, I developed an interest in lace history and identification. Recently, I did a research project learning about and recreating a Pre-columbian lace fragment found in Spiro Mounds, OK. (see IOLI Winter 2012 Bulletin)
Your work on photo sharing site flickr? picasa? photobucket? or similar? (you can leave this blank)

A wonderful site with needle lace fans.

I guess this is the place to put this.  I have just been notified of this site and found images of wonderful needle lace fans:

I have not checked out the whole site, but the lace fans can be found in the list under Catalogue.  

The sticks of this fan are absolutely amazing! …

Hi Paula. I made the network directly during the execution of small hearts but I modified the traditional Burano network entering the needle through the finger stitch of the previous row. I like to experiment with new ideas.Ciao

Paula, you said "I have a photo I made for the Lace Museum's newsletter of a real Halas butterfly the guild purchased for the museum.  I am not sure if I should post that photo here".  If your concern is copyright issues: if you took the photo, you own the copyright to the photos, unless the Lace Museum paid you for taking the photo.  If you did it "for hire", then the entity that paid you owns the copyright.

We see so little Halas lace.  So long as you own the copyright, we are desperate for pictures.

And don't worry about posting photos of imperfect lace.  You should see the ghastly stuff I posted when I was just learning.  Your isn't ghastly.

Your gros point and point de gaze pieces are beautiful.

Welcome.  Please read the NOTES.  What differs between this network and laceioli is that NLT has a very narrow focus on true needlelace.  We have lots of beautiful photos of modern and antique needlelace.  Join whatever groups interest you.  Nice to see you here.  Contact me if you have questions.
