The Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit until Jan 10, 2016

Exhibit titled:  Fashion and Virtue: Textile Patterns and the Print Revolution 1520-1620

This exhibit is well worth seeing if you have a couple of hours in New York City.   I was lucky to be in NYC for a long weekend and enjoyed viewing this exhibit. My husband found the entire exhibit very interesting and he is not a lacer!  It is only 2 galleries and the items are beautiful to view.   If the Christmas Tree is still up - that is special to see as well.

Chris, how did your pdf's about conservation get put in the "pages" section?

I decided to create a separate group for CONSERVATION issues.  So your 2 pages will be there, not in the HISTORY-IDENTIFICATION group.

There is a problem with the suppliers list pdf that you sent to Debra.  It is in columns, and the software here can't sort it out.  So I need you to edit that list to make it all 1 column of names.  It will be longer, but that's OK.

Debra Jenny passed on to me your note and the 2 pdf files.  I will add them to the identification-history group, under "pages".  Look under the avatars of the group members for a short list of links in red.  Your 2 files will be there.  You can contact me through this ioli network by clicking on ioli wherever you see it in red.  That will take you to my profile page.  You can either leave a comment on my wall, or you can send me a private email.  Look under my icon (the blue flower).  Click on SEND MESSAGE, and it will take you to a page where you can write an email.

Thanks for the conservation info.

Welcome.  Please read all the NOTES, which explain our policies, and how the software works.  Join whatever groups interest you.  Post some photos of your lace.  If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.  Since we just started up 2 days ago we are still in process.  But if you have specific questions, post them in the BEGINNERS group, and we'll see who answers.
