The Lacemaker's Home Page

Welcome to Arachne's Web Server

Arachne's Web Server is dedicated to the lacemaker's art. Due to personal bias, the contents will tend to lean heavily towards 16th and early 17 century laces, and lacemaking in the SCA.

I've started with a few files I have lying around - postings I have written in response to questions on rec.org.sca, and lecture notes I've written for various classes. If you have files you would like to make available here, please (please!) send me email.

Arachne's Web Server is not associated with SCA guild of Arachne's Web.

a cute little spiderweb here.)

What's New...

As I announced on the list, I've moved the site to a slighly longer URL - if you are reading this, you found us.

The Lacemaker's Mailing List

There is an active community of lacemakers on the net communicating via email on the lacemaker's mailing list. Sign up and join the fun.


Lace Files

Here is a random assortment of files I've written and made available. As I write/format files, I'm adding them here. When the list gets long enough to need further breaking down I'll rearrange things.


Suppliers and other sources of information

I have removed the guild and supplier pages because they are so badly out of date. I'm working on a new solution. Meanwhile here is a very short list of current places you can go for more information:
