Lighthouse Lacers

April 2022 Lighthouse Lacers Newsletter

Let's hope those April showers (snow flakes) will give way to only the more traditional kind this month. The March meeting was attended by seven members. Our VP, Fran, led the meeting and the following was covered: Discussion about possible topics to cover this year included: how to make a nice center (magic thread), how to end bookmarks (diagonal and straight edges), six pair crossings with three braids or tallies, weavers knot, framing simple pieces with foot edge plait, and two tone tulle. Agenda was set for the rest of the year.  See below.

Show and tell - Sylvia has been busy since we last saw her in November. She designed and made the angel tree topper for our hospice tree, made 30 different ornaments for the tree, had a number of bookmarks and several double sided ornaments, and a copy of Simple Lace that published one of her ornaments. She also mentioned a European teaching site with lots of learning material - that she has been using. Trish shared the tree skirt sample. The final project is white with gold as the striping to match the angel. We had a chance to catch up with everyone. The convention favors were not started at this meeting. The April 9th meeting will be held from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
