Good for you Jane. I joined it to a while ago and then realized not much was happening. Well, I then realized that it was up to me to connect to others and look around more, and ask questions. It sure helped!
Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. I also administer a separate online network that is devoted entirely to needle lace. It is also free to join. http://needlelacetalk.ning.com If you have any questions about either network, contact me and I'll try to help.
