&Spotlight: Needlelace Video Tutorials by Michael Dennis
In honor of stumpwork month, I'll point you towards this fantastic series of video tutorials made by Michael Dennis, who is currently the Chairman of the UK Guild of Needle Laces. Michael is also the husband of the well-known stumpworker, Kay Dennis, and together they have written several books on the subject. I was lucky enough to be present for a talk by this duo at my local Embroiderers' Guild meeting last week, and when these videos were mentioned, I absolutely had to go check them out!
This video tutorial series takes you through the entire needlelace-making process, from beginning to end, step-by-step. They are clear and easy to understand - absolutely the first place to go if you want to give needlelace a try. In fact, I'll be doing that very thing myself - and I'll be back in a few days to show you how I do!
