What people said about this lesson...

"This was really cool to learn how you can translate a lace pattern of fabric into a delicate piece of art work. My grandmother and mother used to do some lace work, so it struck a very fond "memory cord" in me. Thanks for the presentation and opportunity to create!"

"I'm only halfway through our new antique lace tutorial but I had to hit Pause button to share how much I love this lesson. As I am listening, it seems I am feeling Eni's love for her grandmother and I feel similarly towards mine. Some of the old arts that were created by our ancestors are falling away. My great aunt did "tatting", my grandmother was a seamstress and loved to crochet, my mother embroidered, etc. I had to stop the video because my eyes were filled with tears as I thought of those who came before and to whom we owe so much. Thank you, Eni, for reminding me of some deeply treasured people/memories and simpler time. Now I can continue watching and learning..."

Dear Eni, I’ve had a lot of fun ”sewing” on my tile! I can’t wait to try others from your art club."
