All lace makers welcome

This group is mainly to gather together lace makers, any type, bobbin,needle tatting etc to share our blog links and general lace oriented chat/dissusion/help. For example,I've never tried needle lace so I will be looking to find out more about that technique.
Anyone with an interest in lace is welcome :-)

Hi dears friends
I put a link on Lace Links about Puncetto Valsesia but it is also interesting to see other related videos( youtube).
I hope that you enjoy!!

welcome Judy, I'm sure we are going to have a voyage of discovery with this group. I was playing with tatting last week but still get in a pickle!

I have been keeping an eye on what has been happening here, and looking for a long lost tatting shuttle to make a start. I haven't found that tatting shuttle, but my sister found one for me,
I have enjoyed looking at tatting tutorials, and other links you have added here, plus I have been 'googling' so have plenty of information to start, but I have also been getting side tracked by mentions of all sorts of other lace, and trying to resist more temptations.
The most interesting thing I have found so far is that there is macrame lace. I did macrame in the 80s, even taught others, but that was the stuff made of twine rather than cord, and probably far removed from macrame lace made from thread.
This sounds like a great group to get tangled up with, and I hope that comment doesn't become closely related to my attempts at lacemaking in what ever forms I try! I have visions of thread 'spiders' clinging to my clothing rather than the 'thread worms' I have lived with most of my life.

A friend asked me last night to teach her how to make lace, we will start next year and see how it goes. I'm playing with colour at the moment.

I saved the patterns from my old copies but have never tried to work one of them ( so far)

Thanks for posting the bookmark pic, so inspiring. I was at my local lace group yesterday trying to catch up on my bobbin lace. I am so bored with the piece I am doing, I just need to get it off the pillow so I can do something else. I will probably have to go back & redo all my samples again to get the practice in. I did, however, acquire a book on Teneriffe lace yesterday and my fingers are itching to do a piece now. Anna magazines are still available here in Australia and are carried by a few newsagents. One, not too far from me still carries them, but I find them really hard to follow.

The same here it has been awhile since I made torchon lace. Makes me want to make something also but had to sleep today as I got no sleep yesterday . I spent the day with DH while he got treatment at the hospital. You can't sleep in those chairs . Do you remember the chairs from high school with the attached desk top? Not very comfortable. I did get some work done on my knitted lace shawl. The local book store finally stopped carrying the Anna magazine about 2 yrs. ago. I really miss it. They did have a local lace show but DH needed to get rest and he would have insisted on going if I went. Believe it or not he likes to go along and look at the work that has been finished. He is threatening to enter my projects in next yrs.' state fair.(I talked him out of doing it this year.) I've got to go and answer some e-mail and get ready for work. I'm envious that you got to work on the lace,maybe this will get me going to do something myself.

finally finished torchon bookmark, so out of practise!! still managed to cope with broken thread but the end way a little untidy :-(

A big welcome to you :-) We no longer see Anna magazine in the UK ( at least not around Nottingham) but I assume it is still going. I have a few old issues stashed away with lace patterns in them.

Hi, I like to make lace and read about it. Over the yrs. I've done some tatting, crochet, knitted, netting, filet, bobbin,and needle. My last bobbin lace piece was a pattern from Anna mag. of the maddona and child which I gave to my church for christmas. I've been doing hardanger with needle lace fillings . Lots of tatted projects mostly small projects but this year I made a tatted top for a pair of sandals. I am currently making a knitted lace shawl with a lovely lace yarn of alpaca and silk. I've looked at your blogs and you are doing beautiful work. I haven't started a blog yet been a little busy at home. DH is ill and has lots of drs. appts. and hospital stays. I try to do projects that are portable at this time. Keep up the good work.
