Cindy - Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. I especially recommend the IDENTIFICATION-HISTORY group to help you identify your laces. To care for lace I suggest looking through the arachne archive, for posts by Jeri Ames.  She knows a lot about conservation.

If you have any questions about our site, contact me and I will try to help.
