A3 PLOTADOTS

Plotadot grids were first developed by Deborah Robinson whilst studying for the City & Guilds Pilot Scheme in Creative Studies Part 1 (Lacemaking) in the 1980's. The original list of grids grew as lacemakers made various requests and suggestions, and resulted in grids ranging from traditional Bucks Point and Torchon grids, circles and ellipses of different sizes, to the more creative and experimental.

In late 2009, Deborah was contacted by lace designer and author, Jane Atkinson, regarding the Plotadot grids. At this time, Jane was working on her book Contemporary Lace for You and was researching the availability of unusual and larger creative grids. With Jane's prompting, Deborah was encouraged to reprogram the old A4 files as A3 sized grids and to continue creating an increasing range of new grids.
