Lighthouse Lacers

September 2019 Lighthouse Lacers Newsletter


Remember to keep track of your lace hours. This is to help maintain the non-profit status for our chapter and IOLI as an organization.  Demo hours, travel time to demo, prep time for demo, teaching, and any other activities that promote lace (e.g. ornaments for hospice tree) can be submitted.

Our August 10th meeting  started at 1:00 p.m. and was attended by nine members.
Rose Ann has submitted the tax form.  She distributed index cards to help us record lace hours.  With 2020 being a hospice tree year, we should be over 1000 hours as a group.  There will be a lace day in
Ithaca, NY. , 10-11 through 10-14. She has a flyer with details if interested in attending.  She will order the two CDs that were mentioned in previous emails.  Still looking for the 2018 convention CD.
We will do a catered lunch for Dec 14th.  Let board members know if you have a food allergy so we can plan menu.

Barbara Gordon brought in her book called 'Button Jar Tatting' by Martha Ess.  This is what she used to tat some examples of tatting with buttons.  A few hints were given on things she learned herself by doing it.

Sylvia has been busy experimenting with sudoko using her own hand colored threads and several pieces of fillet lace. She also brought a number of older lace pieces to share with group.
