For those who love hand made lace.
Some basic information about the Point Ground Proficiency Program.
From Jo Ann Eurell in April 2012 -
The journals are designed to help one learn by researching the information about what makes the laces differ and there are pattens and photos of the lace. If you attended IOLI in St. Paul, you may have heard that you do not have to do a piece of lace perfectly to submit it. If there are any mistakes, you note the mistake in your documentation and state how to correct the mistake. This is how we all learn from our mistakes.
In addition, you can submit a piece or two for a "pre-assessment" for feedback to see if you are on the right track with your lace and documentation process. If you have questions, you can ask your questions to make sure you understand the process that the IOLI journal is asking you to do.
I also recall that IOLI has asked if you find an error in the journal to email it to IOLI because they do update the journals to improve it for future users. "
