Having fun! Here are some of us attending the Lace Day that was organized by the Lacemakers And Collectors Exchange. From left to right is Lace-lovin'Librarian Diane, me, Barbara, Gina, and Linda.
Bobbin lace in progress.
Some of the tempting threads and equipment for sale.
Vendors included LacySusan, Kenn Van Dieren, and The Lacemaker USA.
So many choices!
Beautiful lace art done by the members of L.A.C.E.
The Lace Day offered classes in bobbin lace, kumihimo, crochet, and beginning tatting.
I didn't sign up for any classes myself, just did some shopping and then sat down to tat in the demonstration area. Several people showed interest in what I was doing - which at the time wasn't "normal" tatting, but happened to be a "pearl tatting" project. So more questions followed! I did demonstrate the basic "flip" of shuttle tatting to several people, and assisted one extremely interested lady in choosing a good beginning tatting book from the vendors.
