Design Your Own Lace
(This is not a contest)

Be your own lace designer! 

We will provide a pricking approximately 4 times a year.

You decide which stitches to use.


  • You do not have to be a member of the HLG to participate.
  • You must use all the holes
  • Do not make any new holes
  • Send a sample of your lace (at least 3-4 repeats) and a short description of which stitches used.  If you are able to make a colored diagram, we would appreciate it, but it is not required.

We will post some samples with diagram on this web site.

If you want your lace sample back you must include a self addressed stamped envelope.

Mail your sample to:
