Hi, I'm in 3 discussion groups: Beginner bobbin lace, point ground and one other. I don't understand why threads of the beginner bobbin lace continue going to my old Comcast email address, when I've moved, no longer use it, a D.C. changed it to a gmail address in my IOLI profile some time ago. Please let me know how this can be straightened out. Thanks! Holly Powers

Hello,
I'm not sure I know your name, but I have a few questions I hope you can help me with...First, if in settings I changed my email address zip code and city (moved from Washington state to Missouri), why am I still getting emails to Comcast vs. gmail, and the groups are showing I'm still living in Kent, Washington? Please advise on what I need to do to correct this. Also what is the difference between a group and the forum(s)? Finally--don't know if I should address this to you: if I want to become proficient in Bucks Point (in the IOLI program established), have no teacher or guild nearby, how is this accomplished. Or is proficiency merely for those who already are proficient in the lace but are certified? Thanks so much for all your suggestions and assistance. Holly Powers

Hello Lorelei, I have a couple of question: If my goals for the far future would make a peasant dress. Would I purchase a flat pillow with a roller or would you be able to use a bolster pillow?  If so would you use a large or small bolster pillow.  There are other equipment I am interested in, where can I learn more like what kind a lace would a Rue pillow make for me? What do different bobbins do.

Thank you so much!

Sandra
