Betty will be coming to Williamburg ( I lace with the Colonial lacers there) after the convention so I will get to take her class then.

Julia thank you so much for the offer.

If you would like to have Betty's snail mail and email address I could send them privately to you. Just contact me at ioli.southwestdirector@gmail.com She does have some good practice strips of technique as well as small pieces to work on.

It would be a good learning pattern. I'd like to know its source, also.

Thanks Barbara. 

Kenneth: I made a mistake in my comment.  It wasn't Mary McPeek's book I found at VanSciver, but Vera Cockuyt's.  (I was thinking Vera Cockuyt but looking at Mary McPeek.  A senior moment)  The link was to a section with Vera's books.  I haven't seen her Cantu book, so I don't know what it is like.  I have some of her other ones.  They are self-published, and not in color.  So she has to rely on verbal descriptions.  But there are many useful diagrams in her other books.
