Important! This is my new lace website - a rewrite of my old one (and, I think, better!) It is not yet quite complete.
If you can't find something, or prefer the old format, click here.
For beginners - equipment, how to set up a pillow, easy patterns
Patterns - free patterns and descriptions
Stitches - the manipulation of bobbins which is the basis of bobbin lace, with a description, animation and photos of each stitch
Grounds (or nets, or réseau) - open areas of lace
Solid areas (or clothwork, or toilé) - denser areas of lace
Headsides - non-straight edge of lace
Footsides - straight edge of lace
Spiders, joins, etc.
Other lace shapes - corners, mats, etc.
Other - various subjects
