Lyn Wilkinson of Backgrounds for Stitchers produced a five-tutorial seriesfor Heirloom Sewing projects. The tutorials demonstrate how to make lace from dingbats, beading and ribbon, as well as a completed heirloom heart.  They make use of PSP 7 and Greg's Pool Shadow. She makes extensive use of the keyboard shortcuts throughout her tutorials, as well as the Grid and Guide Properties.  Particularly good is the section in the Insertion Lace tutorial that teaches how to make the lace pattern seamless. The tutorials would be appropriate for the intermediate to advanced level PSP user.
