    Wow, thank you so much for posting this, I wonder if my Croatian grandmother, who died before I was born, was a lace maker?

    I admire their skills - My Grandmother did tatting and I just can't get the tensions right. I was taught by her to crochet the pillowcase edgings. I have all her crochet hooks and treasure them dearly.
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    Thank you for posting this - very interesting and inspiring! I had never seen anyone making lace and searched a bit further. It turns out that Youtube also has instructional videos for making bobbin lace, and probably any other craft a person might want to learn. It's amazing what's out there. Just at a time when there is reason to be concerned that some of the old crafts could be dying out, there is suddenly a worldwide community sharing skills and techniques, as well as purely inspiring and informative videos such as this.

    And I thought that I did a good thing when I crocheted some lace and a Christening dress!! Their work is spectacular.

    Mandyrose I was going to skip this post but I so glad I didn't. This was so interesting. Living in Phoenix for the winter, I had no idea all these beautiful aloe plants that surround us could be made into lace. This was very cool! Thanks for sharing.
