    Hello Ms. Tranor. My name is Vivienne. I have signed up for your classes to be held in July in Manchester New Hampshire USA.

    When I signed up I went in search of your book to start my homework…HELP!!!

    Your 2002 book is out of print and copies are selling online for $198

    Lacis has not yet published your 2nd edition and will only say that it will be ready for their workshop…which is after the one I am attending.

    Could you please advise how I might get a copy of your book, or patterns to do the homework

    Thank you…Vivienne McMullen

    I also signed up for both of your classes in Manchester and cannot get a copy of the book either in order to get the homework done. The print copies on amazon are selling for a ridiculous amount of money.

    what are your suggestions?

    Thanks

      Hi Shari
      Don’t worry about the homework! I will have copies of the book for sale in Manchester – at Rita Weiss’s stand. It is now available from Lacis.com. Ignore Amazon, until Lacis get on to them. I look forward to meeting you in person. If you are still really keen to do the homework, let me know and I will send you copies of the patterns, but there is no need!

    Hello Maire,

    What would be easier for you re: buying your book? Should I order it from Lacis or get it from you in NH at the K and C show? I”m planning to bring motifs I”ver already done to the classes.

      Hi Suzanne

      Great to hear from you. I intend having books on Rita Weiss’s stand, but it’s up to you. If you want to order from Lacis, that’s fine. You are obviously familiar with Irish Crochet. I expect various levels in the class, both beginners and improvers. Looking forward to meeting you all in person.

      Hi Dineen
      I haven’t seen the article yet, though it is in the post. To answer your question – the instructions for the motifs
      used in the mask are in the book. I always encourage creativity, so can make a mask of your own, using the
      motifs in the book:) Does that answer your question. If you live in the States, you can order the book from Lacis.com
      If you live anywhere else in the World, you can order it from me:)

        Okay…thank you very much. Yes, that answers our question. My daughter is interested in the mask because she does 18th century re-enacting.

        another thought. Where do you or your daughter live? I will be giving workshops in Berkeley and the Steven Be Yarn Garage in Minneapolis in July and August. Last year in Minneapolis, one of the women there did her own mask in green thread. One of my daughters friends was really interested in it for a re-enactment too.

    Yes thats true. I will be doing a series of 4 articles in Interweave Crochet and I will doing directions for some of the motifs in the mask.

    My question is about the mask in Interweave Magazine. Does your book have instructions about how to make the mask itself, instead of just the motifs. I would like to know how to make the mask behind the motifs as well as the motifs themselves. Thank You. I live in the United States, by the way.

    • Posted by cloneslace on June 28, 2011 at 9:01 pm

      Hi Sarah. Clones Lace is an Irish Crochet lace and is the original free form crochet. As such I always encourage creativity. Over the next few months, I will be giving directions for the motifs that I used in the mask. They are also in my book. I will also giving directions for the Clones knot, which is the filling stitch with which I join the motifs together. The easiest way to do the mask is to make your own template and start learning the motifs you are going to use to fill it. You don’t have to use the same motifs that I have used. I will be working towards a shawlette, over the next few issues of Interweave Crochet, though you can make a smaller piece, such as the mask, using the same motifs. I hope this answers your question.
      I also have a mask for sale, if anyone wishes to purchase it from me:)

      Hi Rebecca

      It’s great to hear that you are interested in buying 3 copies of my book on Clones Lace. However you do not say where you live. Lacis have the rights of selling books in the USA. However if you live outside the US, I can sell them to you. Please specify where you live. I have been short of books since the beginning of November, when I ordered more copies from Lacis for the Christmas rush. I finally got them yesterday, so I’m okay again. The book is going to print at the moment, so if you live in the USA, you might have to wait, unless they have a few extra:)
      If you live outside the USA, you can pay me using Paypal and my gmail address.

        Hi Estelle I posted the book. However I sent another book to the UK and it was damaged, so I’m worried about yours! When it arrives, tell me what condition it is in and I will replace it, if necessary!

        Good day Maire ,

        Do you perhaps have any idea how long it will take for my book to arrive that you posted on 30 September 2012 .( I have not received it yet ).

        If you send it via registered mail could you please forward me the tracking no to admin@rozello.co.za then I can try and track it from this side ?

        Regards and God bless !

    Hi there

    I live in england and would be interested in a copy of this book, I have also noticed there is a dvd on ebay called crochet workshop. Do you supply this as well and if so how much would it cost?

    Kind regards

      Hi Cait

      If you send 24 sterling, including P+P, I can send a signed copy of my book to you asap.
      I live just a few minutes from Newtownbutler PO, so it’s easy to post it there and you’ll
      receive it in a couple of days!

      I didn’t know that the dvd was on ebay! It is called Irish Crochet/Clones Lace Workshop!
      It is available from Interweave in the States. I hope to have some copies soon, but
      I haven’t seen it yet! I’m waiting for it to arrive in the post!
      If you google ‘Crochetme – dvds for sale’ it should come up!
      If you have any trouble you can contact me again. It’s probably
      better to write to me on my gmail acc.
      If you want to use Paypal, use my gmail address!
      Sorry for not seeing this earlier!

    My husband gave me the book and dvd for Christmas.
    I had looked on Amazon and the price was very high. When I searched around I found this site.
    I hope you teach a class in Manchester NH again. I wasn’t aware that you came this far.

      Hi Jeanne
      I’m glad you searched around and found a more reasonable price. I have tried unsuccessfully to lower the price of my book both in the US and in the UK, but I can’t do it. Other young people, who are better at the PC than I am, have also tried, but can’t. I just hope that anyone interested searches around, like you, and finds a more reasonable price!
      Happy New Year to you. I’d love to come to Indiana this year, but we’ll see what happens! I’ll be in Lacis anyhow at the end of July and my full schedule in the States will be up on this blog soon. Where do you live?

      It’s great to hear that there is an interest in Irish Crochet again in Thailand!
      Long ago, Thailand was one of the places where Irish nuns taught Irish Crochet and
      it was done in Sweatshops. Its lovely that you have a love and passion for it and
      don’t associate it with hard times!
      Were you able to buy my dvd from http://www.crochetme.com?

    Hi Maire,
    just wondering if your book is still available and how much it would be to post to Tasmania Australia, we have paypal so paying isnt an issue I just need to know how much to send you. I havent tried crochet lace but my family emigrated from Co Leitrim in the late 1800′s and I have just learnt torchon lace so this would be the next step. My Great Grandmother (who married one of the immigrants) was a great filet crochet person and I have a number of her pieces and would like to give it a go. It has fewer bits to carry around than torchon lace.
    Kind regards’

    LACE DAY weekend the first weekend in November. Classes and demonstrations are given as well as books and tools to sell and buy. I immediatly thought of you and thought you might be interested in this event.It’s being held in Westwood NJ. It’s about

    I can understand that you would want to leave searing heat, but to come to this snow and blistery conditions! It’s nice to look in dvds or tv, but when you’re trying to get from a-b, that’s a different story! Still it could be worse! The UK is getting worse weather than Ireland, so far… I hope that continues. I don’t mind it for a few days, but then I want the warmer weather back!:)

    I got your paypal payment, but I don’t have an address for you, so please send it to me, on the paypal or on my gmail address! Ask your son to do it!
