JANUARY MEETING - BOBBIN LACE MAKING with Claudia Taenzler
We will start with learning the basic “stitches” used in Bobbin Lace. We will practice those, and then start with a simple project. You will be able to start on a little heart or you take different patterns to create a simple bookmark.
Patterns will be provided.
Please bring the following to our meeting in January:
- Wooden cloth pins will be perfectly fine (around 8 pairs total)
- Yarn of your choice of color and size: mercerized cotton works best, number 30 is the most common one used in Bobbin Lace
- Pins (ordinary sewing pins will do) – a lot, really a lot!
- A piece of Styrofoam (approximately half letter size); if you want to cover it, please just use a piece of fabric. Blue or green color is the best on your eyes.
- Fine crochet hook (for size of your yarn)
- Something to take notes on
- And a lot of EXCITEMENT for this old craft!
These are simple and easy-to-do projects. You will get started and you can finish at home, and maybe start the next project right away.
The Dallas Handweavers and Spinners Guild is dedicated to promoting the art of weaving and the craft of fiber work through education, member activities and mutual support. The Guild promotes fellowship among members with bi-monthly meetings, educational workshops and community demonstrations. The DHSG biennial juried show gives each member an opportunity to show off their latest treasures. We invite you to join us and experience the camaraderie of our members and the interesting topics at one of our general meetings.
Guild members meet odd-numbered months (January, March, May, July, September and November), usually on the first Saturday at 9:30 am, at The Point, Center for Arts and Education on the campus of the CC Young Memorial Home, located at 4829 West Lawther Drive, in East Dallas near White Lake. We enjoy friendships, old and new, and learn from speakers on a wide range of subjects and areas of interest to our members. Each meeting presents a different topic, many times a hands-on topic, and each year our program chairperson tempts members to experiment with a new range of ideas to explore.
If you currently live in North Texas, or plan to visit our area, please join us at one of our regular meetings, or sign up for one of our workshops or special events. For more details, contact us!
