Okay, I'm not sure if I'm posting correctly, but since this forum has the 'miscellaneous' tacked on, it would appear to be the closest fit.

I'm just wondering how many people do some of the other needle arts such as-
 naalbinding, netting,  hedebo, bobbin lace,tambour (hey that makes it relevant to this thread! Smiley) reticella, punto en aria, teneriffe, and other needle made laces, etc.
Just curious to see who else does some of the less common fiber arts, and what you do with your work.

Well, I tat in a very rudimentary fashion, and I want to learn naalbinding.  At this point, though, knitting, crocheting and embroidering take up all my time, so it'll be awhile before I get any further with tatting or learn naalbinding.  Not enough hours in the day or dollars in the bank!!!

PS--I also want to learn Swedish weave.  I don't recognize a lot of the things you listed there, but it all sounds cool and you should stop adding to my list of things to look into doing.   Cheesy  There's too much interesting stuff out there!

I also knit and tat and have plans for learning bobbin lace at some point in the future.

last night i started to learn how to weave. my cousin gave me a belt weaving loom for my highschool graduation many years ago, and it was fun to use. some dude in new hampshire makes the looms. they are small, and you cut out the yarns two feet over the length you want, then you tie this piece of wood that has a slit in it around your waist, and put the yarns in the loom, one end goes in the slit, which has a wedge to keep them in place, and then you tie the other end to a table leg, door knob...i tied it to a chair and did it while sititing.

I spin! I have an Ashford Traveller and a drop spindle. I think they may be my best friends. Sad? Not really!

Reviving an 11 year old topic! Crazy...

I actually was searching on here for teneriffe in hopes that some amazing craftster on here does it, as I am just starting to learn. Few results pop up on pinterest, and this was the only thread that mentions it on craftster.

So to answer the OP's question, I do shuttle tatting, bargello needlework, swedish weaving, kogin embroidery, and all the usual normal, ordinary things like knit, crochet, embroider, etc. 

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.
