February program

“Bobbin Lace Pattern Builder – Knipling” presented by NELG member Jim Martin. This month Jim will give us a look at the bobbin lace pattern creation software “Knipling 3.0”.  This software allows the user to design, save and print both patterns and prickings for many types of bobbin lace including Torchon, Flanders, Paris, Point Ground, Russian, Bloemwork, Rosaline and Free Lace.  This will be a quick look and overview of some of the features of this software.  It is not intended to teach you how to use the software, but rather to allow you to determine if it is something you may like to pursue further. For more information, visit our calendar page.
