I am also a member of the Australian Lace Guild, NSW Branch. I've attended several Lace Days at an historic house nearby, I happen to be a committee member of the Friends group and I open up the house for them as well. To date I haven't attempted bobbin lace making, but I have taken several classes and workshops in needlelace and Aemelia Ars style motifs. I actually learned this pattern at the EG as the tutor was giving a workshop there also. She very generously helped me through a few hiccups at the following Lace Day, thanks Margaret S. I was very happy to complete my very first piece of Aemelia Ars style and once I felt confident I added to the pattern a little. The thread is size 80 Dentelles in ecru. I've also started a pink piece, not sure about that!
