How to…

In this section you will find articles of a more technical nature about some of the things that puzzle lacemakers, many of which come up over and over again. They are illustrated with step-by-step instructions.

When I started lacemaking back in the early 1980s I was dependent on books, magazines and personal contacts for information, but with the advent of the internet everything changed. It never ceases to amaze me how easy it now is to communicate with lacemakers all over the world. And along with the internet the other revolution has been in photography. Younger visitors to this site will not remember having to send away rolls of film and waiting for them to be developed in order to see if they were satisfactory. They may hardly recall digital cameras now that most of us use our phones to take and distribute both pictures and videos of lace techniques.
