The earliest forms of lace involved cutting holes into the fabric and then filling those holes back in with decorative stiches. This handson class will cover the initial steps you need to do to the fabric before starting the actual lace. This hands-on class will demonstrate pulling threads, window edging, hemming and the many helpful uses of starch. Students attending this class will create a fabric piece prepped and ready to execute the lace design (which will be covered in subsequent classes). $2 kit is a one-time fee and usable for classes in the needle lace track
