It has been suggested that it might be useful to print my lace website off. Well, there's a LOT of it, and it would take a long time, and a lot of paper and ink! Also it hasn't been designed to work in a print format. But if you want to, there's probably a print button at the top of this screen, in the browser toolbar.

I can see that printed reference sheets might be useful. So I have made some up. These are Word documents (.doc files). I hope that most people will be able to access a Word reader, even if you don't have a Windows computer. Each document is a single page. The information is summarised from my website. If you want to learn a new stitch, for example, I would advise looking at the website, where there is more information, and moving pictures to help you. But these sheets might be better to keep at your elbow while actually making lace, to remind you of something.

Lace equipment, and how to make lace

Basic lace stitches

Footsides and Headsides - the edges of lace

Grounds and nets - the open areas of lace

Diamonds, zigzags, etc. - the filled-in areas of lace


Starting and finishing lace

If any teacher of lace would like to copy these sheets for her own use (bit of sexism there!) then please do. You don't need to tell me, but I am always happy to hear from you.
