Northwest Lace Conference Part 2

The Teacher showcase was amazing. I can’t believe the talent and dedication exhibited by the teachers from our conference.

This was the table from our teacher, Elena Dickson, for the knotted lace class. Everything was so pretty.

I especially loved the flowers and scarf. Apparently the scarf has a hold on it should Elena ever decide to part with it and I am not the one at the top of that list.

This table was from the Romanian Point Lace instructor.

And then we get into a bunch of things I’m not too sure on.  I know this is bobbin lace, but I’m not sure on my styles.

This one was the wire lace table.  All of the lovely things on this table are made in bobbin lace using wire.  Some of them have beads and some of them are plain, but all of them were interesting and lovely.

Again, bobbin lace, but I’m not sure which kind.

And then there was the Orenburg lace.  It’s not particularly appealing to me as I don’t like garter based laces, but her display was full of technically exquisite pieces and lovely soft wool.


Northwest Lace Conference Part 1

The kick-off for the contest was Wednesday night.  Many of the participants were in hand and followed Jackie as she led the tour.  Unfortunately our conference was not located in a single building on campus, but spread out amongst 4 different buildings.  Fortunately, our conference was spread out amongst 4 different buildings and it was a lovely weekend.  The walk between the buildings each day was pleasant and sunny.

Jackie always seemed to have a smile on her face.  I swear that woman has batteries somewhere and they are labeled “Energizer.”

Shirly was looking her best and checking out some of the displays.

Pauline and Jan are looking a bit less quizzical than their friend.  I think I caught them all a bit unawares.  My friend, Lauren and I had a great time.  This post is already long though, so I will share more another day.
