Techniques

In this section you will find articles of a more technical nature — how to do things, helpful hints and so on. There are some topics that puzzle lacemakers which seem to come up over and over again and I’m hoping to cover all of these eventually. When I started lacemaking back in the early 1980s I was dependent on books, magazines and personal contacts for information but with the advent of the internet everything has changed. It never ceases to amaze me how easy it now is to communicate with lacemakers all over the world. And along with the internet the other revolution has been in cameras — no more waiting for films to be developed but instant pictures which you can send anywhere by email. And not just still pictures — digital cameras take videos too and this is something I will be making use of in this section.
