IOLI Point Ground Proficiency Program

Some basic information about the Point Ground Proficiency Program.

From Jo Ann Eurell in April 2012 -

"Dear Lorelei
I'm not home so Im doing this for memory but I think there are 4 Bucks patterns, 3 Tonder patterns, 1 Chantilly, 1 polychrome,and 1 blonde pattern in the Point Ground journal. The difficulty increases with each pattern within Bucks and Tonder. There are 2 different paths for Chantilly-blonde- polychrome; you may chose patterns by Ulrike Voelker or Lia Baumeister. I think all are samples with the exception of a Bucks hexagon. More than one national tradition - yes, English, Danish and French. The registration fee is $25.  If you submit a portfolio for assessment , the fee is $150.
Let me know if you have further questions
From Chris Brill-Packard September 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. "

from Louise Colgan (August 2015)

Point Ground Proficiency:  Work 10 pieces of Point Ground Lace including examples of Bucks Point, Tønder, Polychrome, Chantilly and Blonde laces.  Answer questions related to the pieces and document your work.  Include a written introduction to Point Ground Lace, bibliography, and lacemaker’s statement.
