"There are so many polys it is enough to make your head spin!!  From what I've been able to find doing a google search sounds as if ethafoam is used more often for packaging and other purposes, and not as rigid.  I think this is…"

"Not to beat this horse until it is dead, but some places have understood what it was when I just called it "hard insulation" and mentioned it comes in sheets.  Usually it is in the lumber section.  It is not easy to shape.…"

"I have completed sample #1, and begun work on sample #2.  Sample #2 is a challenge for me, since it requires substitution of the original grounds in two of the motifs.  I'm pretty handicapped doing anything close to drawing, but the…"

"I know this discussion took place years ago, but as I'm just starting (with great trepidation) I thought I would add a comment. Joan did you ever do this? Anyone else? Or, anyone interested in giving it a try? Carolyn"

"Hello Lorelei, I wonder if you might consider establishing a group for IOLI Proficiency? This was suggested to me as a possibility you might allow, and was one of the reasons I joined laceioli. My interest in the group is to encourage lacemakers…"

Your idea is a good one. I haven't created a group for each of IOLI's proficiency programs, but instead I have created a page within the IOLI group for each program. Look here, under the logo in the left column

 http://laceioli.ning.com/group/international-organization-of-lace-inc

The links are repeated in the 2nd column under the icons/avatars of the members, in the section PAGES. Each page allows comments, so it functions like a group. Members can post photos and so forth. I have also added a link in each relevant group to the IOLI proficienty program. So BOBBIN MADE TAPE LACES has a link to the IOLI tape lace proficiency program page. The TORCHON group has 2 links, since there is a torchon technical proficienty and a torchon mastery program. Etc.

So far I only have a detailed description of the point ground program, taken from the DISCUSSION you found in the POINT GROUND group. Since we are almost on top of the convention I doubt I will get an answer if I write to the IOLI officer in charge. Remind me after convention and I will start asking for details. If you are going to convention perhaps you could corner the person in charge of that area of IOLI's activity and collect some information for us.

Welcome. While Devon's word is as good as gold, there is no need. Membership approval exists so I can keep out con artists and people who want to use us for advertizing. But please do read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. We do have one for IDENTIFICATION-HISTORY, one for BINCHE and the other continental straight laces, one for POINT GROUND LACE (includes Bucks) and one for BEDS. Take some time to explore. The opening page of each group has a recommended book list and links to photos. If you know of good books that aren't listed, please write a book review, and I will add your recommendation to the list for that subject matter.

If you have any questions about the site, contact me and I'll try to help.

Lorelei
