    Hello Ladies, my name is Lisa. I live in Sanford, NC. I am very interested in learning how to do Bobbin Lace. I’m not able to travel far at times due to disability. Where can I find someone who teaches this art of Lace in my area or close to me? Thanks for your help. Have a very blessed day! ?????✴??

  6. 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

      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

    I went to the Lace Day event in April for the first time. I joined the NC Regional Lacers. My understanding was I would be getting a quarterly newsletter. I have never recieved anything. Just wondering who to contact for this.
