You need to be a member of LACEIOLI to add comments!
Everything on laceioli is public except for private emails, called "messages". When you post a public comment on laceioli, your personal email address will never be visible to anyone, member or non-member. Except that you posted your email address publicly for all the world to see. If you had not done that no one would know how to reach you. Only members of laceioli could write public comments to you which everyone could see. I recommend that you edit your comment and remove your email address.
If you want to write to a member privately, first you must "friend" them and they must reciprocate. (This is how the software works, I can't change it.)
But all your conservation comments are useful and valuable for everyone to see. So I hope you will post your ideas publicly.
Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They 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.
