Fall into Lace - lost idea

Have you ever been inspired to take up a lace project only to be unable to becasue you didn't bookmark the page?  happens all the time I'm sure.

As fall descends from the mountains I had wanted to share a simple lace making project with the readers.  It was a set of tape lace leaves that had been sewn onto a fall quilt wall hanging.   Unfortunately I can't find the project to share so I will simply have to inspire you all to take up a fall project.  Or if you are really on the ball a winter one.

  •  In regards to signing up for classes please note the priority is given to those who are members of IOLI.  It is strongly suggested that if you are interested in attending that it is well worth your money to join IOLI - - International Organization of Lace, Inc.

March Meeting

March is the pot luck.  It's also show and tell.  Bring something yummy to eat for lunch and show off your projects.

We'll be working on the pin cushions for convention.  For forming the "petals" you'll need a large sized embroidery/crewel needle.  X-stitch floss will be provided, but if anyone has floss they want to get used up, bring it.

We'll be meeting on the second floor in the kitchen area.

Button Tatting

Button tatting was the thing this Saturday.  With Marie showing us how to work around a 4 hole button.

A number of important ideas came up.  Perhaps the most pressing being that we need to reconstruct that hours from June of last year.  All demos, teaching, etc.  This includes hours spent on ANYTHING for convention.   We need this by May so try and bring what you know for next month.

We still need a bunch of "60" for convention, as well as bags.  Next month we will be finishing up the pin cushions.  It's also the pot luck and show ans tell so finish up some projects cook up something yummy and come have fun.

Lace Forums

The national guild now has a forum site on ning.  The link above will take you to it so you can sign up.  This is the same forum style used by the Needle Lace Talk group  - HERE .  You can join discussion groups about specific types of lace, post photos, and share things.  I think it's a great way to connect with other lace makers.

Also, if you don't already know about it there is a fantastic online tatting group Intatters

This Year's Agenda

We will be doing classes every other month this year.  On those months that are non-classes, we will be making & working on the bags and pillows for convention in 2013.

If you are a newcomer we will gladly help you out with any and all lace questions you have.

For the record, the current presidency will remain until this fall when we will then have elections.
