    Hi everyone,
    I can’t help thinking of you all this weekend. The loss of Pat was very sad news here. Just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you.
    Love and prayers,
    Jane

    I’m so sorry that we have lost Pat. She was a wonderful person, and loved NCRL. I’ll always be grateful that I was at the Fall Lace Day in Gold Hill, which she helped Marge organize. It was a wonderful lace day – memorable in many ways.

    Can anyone assist me in where to go to learn bobbin lace making in NC? I tried to find classes but have not found anyone that can teach a beginner. Your assistance is appreciated.

      Try to attend one of the meetings of the guild so you can talk to members and see if anyone gives private lessons. I don’t know who is teaching right now. Michelle

    I’m a new lacer near Atlanta, GA. In fact, I’ve had one class = yesterday. Where do you lacers buy your bobbins? Our teacher said their was “somebody in NC” who turns his own bobbins. Can you please provide the name, number, website? Thanx.

    I want to get rid of my supply of bobbins, some antique, some are Archer bobbins, plus all supplies such as pillows and books. I have reached that time where my eyes no longer allow me to continue.
    I would appreciate any suggestions on where to sell them.

    My neighbor picked up a partially completed piece of tatting being done against a cloth, obviously meant to be removed when item is completed. It appears to us to be fairly old, maybe 60 years or so. Would anyone like to have this?

    Are there any classes in Charlotte, NC?

    I have a lace making pillow, bobbins, torchon lace books from England and Belgium that I would like to sell. I made a storage and carrying bag for the pillow, so all are in good condition. I live in the Columbia, SC, area, and would like these items to go to someone with more talent and interest than mine. Email me or call, 309 – 472-4950.
