    I am looking for a group of lacemakers in the Greensboro, NC area. Could you please let me know if there are any that would accept a fairly new lacemaker? Best regards, Nancy

  14. Deb Schmalshof says:

    Beginner looking for a mentor. Wondering what are the basics necessary to start. Is this something i can learn from books or videos or is hands-on better? I live near Franklin or Highlands. Is there help in the area? Thanks, Deb

    • mchase says:

      Dear Deb,
      You can learn bobbin lace from books and videos – that is how I learned. It is better to have a teacher though. Look at your local library for books, ask at your local yarn or weaving store if they know any lacemakers, and watch videos on you tube. Check out these websites: and I’m not very familiar with the Highlands or Franklin area. I know there is a group that meets in Tryon, NC at the Lanier Library. The next meeting is on May 27, I believe at 10 AM. The library’s phone number is 828-859-9535. You could call the library to confirm the date and time. Usually lace groups are very welcoming of newcomers who are interested in learning. Good luck, Michelle

  15. Helga Newman says:

    I live in Fayetteville and I am interested in learning lacemaking as well as spinning and weaving. Is there a group in Fayetteville?

  16. Mary Pugh says:
