I just found out today that ning is raising their annual hosting free from $239.90 to $588. Up til now the IOLI has been paying our fee. I have written to them about this. There is, of course, the possibility that they will decline. This will not become an issue until January of 2017 when our next fee is due. There may be no problem. Or there may. I thought I should let you all know about this now, in case I have to do something else, like asking for donations.

This site is worth more than money, certainly more than the higher billing.  It is head and shoulders above other craft sites, the grand master model.  I would choose to belong to Laceioli even if it were an independent organization charging dues. 

Francine - I appreciate your vote of confidence. I put a lot of work into setting up this site.

Lorelei - You have set it up beautifully and continue to make it an outstanding site.  After my note earlier, I wished I had added one more idea.  Advertising by lace suppliers would serve the on-line community and the suppliers very well.  Happy to help brainstorm off-line as well.  Francine, fjacobson@rcn.com

I'd willingly contribute a few dollars, the site is definitely worth it.

I want to report that yesterday I had word from the IOLI president, Jean Leader. She told me that the IOLI board has agreed to continue funding us, even though the annual hosting fee has risen more than 200%. So we continue at least to the end of 2017. (Our fee to ning is next due in January of 2017.)

Congratulations to Lorelei and the IOLI board.  Laceioli is extremely valuable to everyone who is interested in lace and lace-making.  


Do you mean January 2018 your fee is due???

Yes, Katy, January 2017.  During December of this year, or early in January, I will start a donation drive. I do this every year. So far with no problems.
