My son and his girlfriend have both just accepted teaching positions in Luton, UK. I have been searching every where in Ontario Canada for Eyelet Knitting lace and cannot find it. It is not as popular here as in the UK. I have found it online but it is kind of expensive with the shipping. Can you recommend any place that they may find it for me? Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Vicki

You could go to Google UK, try a search there, you never know, might get lucky, maybe add Luton to the search and come up with some wool shops.
Hopefully, this will bump the post, get a few UK members replying

I found some on E-bay a few months back. You might try there.

Do you mean a place in the UK where they can find it?
Most larger places that sell yarn should sell it.
Tell them to look for yarn stalls in the market....usually a good place to buy.

Otherwise here is a site that sells it for a good price ~ and they ship worldwide...

Here is another

http://www.lainesworld.co.uk/L/eyeletlace.html

you can scroll down the page and find some free patterns for using the lace ;-) ;-)

I've just found a shop online in Liverpool that is selling it for 56c a metre.
If they have any trouble buying it, I could always buy it and post it to them. Just let me know if I can help

:-D :-D

Have they tried market stalls, that's where I picked up mine when I lived in Swansea.
