Teneriffe Lace- Pin Cushion How To

To make Teneriffe Lace, you need to have a flat, sturdy pin cushion that the loom sits on.

Here’s the list of equipment and materials that you’ll need to make your Teneriffe Lace Pin Cushion:

1- Corrugated cardboard

2- Sharp craft knife (do NOT use dull knives and always cut away from yourself)

3- A cutting board

4-Scissors

5- Fabric and felt to cover the pin cushion and to make the base

6- Needle and Thread

7- Thimble

Instructions:

1- Cut 8 circles of cardboard that are 4 inches/10 cm in diameter for the larger pincushion for your square loom.

2- The triangle loom works fine on a 3 1/2 inch/8.75 cm diameter pin cushion.  Cut 8 circles of corrugated cardboard for this pin cushion.  Note- in the video, I only cut 6 for the smaller pin cushion, which is okay, but 8 circles are better.

Now, the video shows how to put it all together:

Teneriffe Lace Weave Along Links

I absolutely love making Teneriffe Lace, and have designed a set of lovely little looms and a whole bunch of delightful projects to make with them.
I am making a series of ‘how to’ videos that show how to make all the shapes, and then how to use them to create lovely projects.
I’ll place the links to the blog posts that have the how to videos and diagrams on this post to make it easy for people to click on the one that they are looking for.
I designed the looms, but don’t have the time (I am working on another new book as well as a solo show of my new Woven Women- wow… busy!) or the equipment to be able to make the looms, so I have asked Donna and Gary McFarland of Dewberry Ridge Looms if they would make the looms.
Hurrah! They said yes!
To order the looms, please go to:
And, if you would like to participate in a group where you can join in the  Teneriffe Lace Weave Alongs in an interactive way, then you are welcome to join either or both of these groups.

July 2014 Tapestry Diary

I’ve been so busy catching up since we got home from holidays that I forgot to post a pic of my July Tapestry diary.

Here it is:

The title is: ‘Questions’.

It’s 3 inches wide by 5 inches tall.

I wove it on my wee copper pipe loom at 8 epi.

Tapestry diary June 2014 -Doorway

Having committed to weaving a tapestry diary for the year of 2014 has been a wonderful experience for me.

As I have been experimenting with my diary pieces, I have come to a huge ‘aha’ about the ways that I love to work.

I have found that weaving tiny tapestries, 3 inches/7.5 cm by 5 inches/12.5 cm truly makes my heart sing.

Here is my completed tiny tapestry for the month of June:

copyright Noreen Crone-Findlay http://www.crone-findlay.com

I wanted to show the small size of the tapestry by placing it in the context of my studio, and I inadvertently included  a little self revelation that made me flinch when I first saw the  pic.

My little rock with ‘good enough’ in chalk….. not feeling good enough has been a life long struggle for me, and it’s rather ouchie to have my little ‘good enough’ rock in the photo.

BUT, I figured that I am not alone in this struggle, so, what the heck…. if it feels too uncomfortable to leave the pic as is, I can take it down… but… maybe it could be helpful to someone else who navigates that particular minefield, too, so, I’ll leave it for now.

To be honest, the weaving in this piece does have aspects that are not good enough.

But, as I have lived with now for the few days since I finished it, I have decided that there’s more to it than meets the eye, and I like how I have had ‘aha’ moments with it- finding new meaning in it.

One of the rules of the tapestry diary that I have made for myself is that I have to ask myself:

Where am I right now? What am I working on?

And, then do a drawing that feels like it has possibilities to show me more about that.

When I began my June drawing, I was deeply grieving the death of one of our beloved little dogs, as well as several other losses.

It made me really aware of how those we love do come and go, and how tender and precious life is….¬† and that’s what came up in the drawing and the weaving.

On the other hand, my daughter in law thinks it looks like something out of Star Trek or sci fi.

LOL!!!!¬† That works for me!¬† I say: If you see something in it that I didn’t, then, YAY! that’s a win.

….. and that’s good enough for me…..
