Thank you for the welcome. I would love to join the other group as well. I will chime in if I have something of value to offer, or if I have a pertinent question. I was wondering now that people are a little more comfortable meeting in person, do you ever set up a time of getting together to chat and craft?
thanks for accepting me. I'm currently doing a city and guilds course in hand embroidery and learning lots of diferent technniques that i have never tried before including needle lace. I'm throughly enjoying the needlelace and probably because I also do knitting I am understanding how the stitiches work. I have to do some submission pieces to complete my course and I have ideas to include needlelace in my desighs. I'm looking forward to fidning out more about the techniques
Hello there, Many thanks to you all for inviting me to join you.
You might say that I have a healthy obsession with the early laces of the Baroque period.
My greatest passion for the last six years has been in the historical study of laces (mostly bobbin) in paintings and rediscovering long lost stitches, drafting them and passing them on to my students.
I am now at the stage where I need to embrace the fact that needle and bobbin laces in the past were often blended together within the same piece. I am positively itching to learn how to make some of these wonderful needle lace stitches and hopefully incorporate them with my reproduction bobbin laces.
So thank you very much for this opportunity, your lovely website is most inspiring.
bedankt voor het fijne welkom, ik kijk er naar uit om deel uit te maken van de gemeenschap en leer er veel, want ik ben een echte beginner. sorry als mijn taal niet correct is aangezien ik nederlands spreek
Many thanks for accepting my request and welcoming me to your group. I need one help form anyone from this forum. I want to buy two books from one of the italian website but my UK server is not picking up the website and directs me to some other websites.
