IOLI, the lacemakers organization, has a proficiency program for tape lace (braid lace).  I haven't seen it and don't know its contents.  If anyone has worked through this program or can tell us anything about it, please post a review or intormation below. 

from Louise Colgan (August 2015)

Tape Lace Proficiency:  Work 13 pieces of Tape Lace including examples of Milanese, Schneeberger, Russian, and Idrija laces.  Answer questions related to the pieces and document your work.  Include a written introduction to the laces, bibliography, and lacemaker’s statement.

The IOLI tape proficiency program is on a cd.  Send an e-mail to Louise Colgan  and she will give you the cd.

It costs $25 to join.  You read the notes, do the projects, report on how you did the projects and answer the questions they pose.Write a report about each kind of lace. Put it into a notebook with the pieces of lace you made and submit it at the convention.  It covers Milanese lace, Schneeberger lace, Russian lace, and Idrija laces.

I am half way through my first piece.  This is going to take some time. 

Julia: thanks for your report on the proficiency program.  I would love to see pictures of your progress with it.

I will update you on my progress.
