I greatly enjoyed your article in the current issue of the IOLI Bulletin. You are addding a great deal of detail to public knowledge about the specifics of needle lace making. I hope you are thinking about archiving your series of articles in some fashion. This, possibly, as pdf files. The readership of the Bulletin is too small an audience for what you are doing. Your hard work deserves more exposure.
Please check out the current DISCUSSION in our BOBBIN MADE TAPE LACE group about Polish bobbin lace. She lists several videos on the subject. I though you might want to add them to your playlists, if you don't have them already.
I did not see the Art Institute of Chicago among your American lace museums on your pinterest board. http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/artwork/category/14 They do have a substantial lace collection - over 1000 piece. They are not usually on exhibit, but can be viewed in private apointments. I don't know what the current rules and conditions are. But they are definitely worth seeing. Lots of 16th and 17th century pieces. Genoese, Milanese and Flemish tapes laces are what i concentrated on. You might want to add it.
Laurie: I was just looking at the lacenews pinterest pages. You have a page for ravelry groups, but there is one you left out. It is an Irish crochet group, separate from Maire Treanor. It is very active, with lots of resources collected. Take a look, I think you will want to add it.
Hi, I have a son who lives in Los Alamos. The next time I am up there we could get together and talk lace. I get the feeling I am going to be a lone lacer down here. I do hope to go to any classes they offer in Albuquerque. It is 4 hours drive one way from here to there so I don't think I am going to do it every month.
Hi, I am a lace maker from Texas. I belong to the Austin Lacemakers and IOLI. I just moved to Silver City, NM and am wondering what lace goes on in NM or around Silver City? i would love to have some company. Karisse A. Moore
