Lighthouse Lacers

December 2017 Lighthouse Lacers Newsletter
Retreat on November 11th was attended by ten members. Pat taught Carrickmacross to five and other members worked on bobbin lace or tatting. A great potluck was made and shared.  Demo at International Market at Civil War Museum on December 2nd was discussed as was dinner at Baker Street Restaurant & Pub on Dec 9th. Emails were sent about both events. 

Remember to keep track of your lace hours.  IOLI has an updated online form to use.  Do not have enter "seconds," only hours and minutes spaces. You do not have to be an IOLI member to submit hours for the hours to count for our chapter.  Categories to track are: demonstrating lace, travel time to and from event, preparation time preceding event, gratis teaching, programs presented, and other type of hours used to promote lace.
