Fixing mistakes can be challenging for any maker. Fixing mistakes in lace is a whole separate level of challenge. As each repair is unique, we thought it would be helpful to start a collection of links to resources that can help you navigate the situation, rather than try to synthesize the information and images into a smaller blog post.
We hope these sites encourage you to work on lace knowing that there is no shame in making mistakes and that there are ways to avoid frogging an entire day’s (or month’s!) work to fix something.
