2021 IOLI Convention : "By the Light of the Silvery Moon" will be held July 24th - August 1st at The Nugget in
Sparks NV. List of classes and instructors were in the summer IOLI bulletin.
They have announced a competition. Lace a moon. Piece should be a full circle or a circular edging with at least one silver thread. The diameter should be a minimum of 4 inches and a maximum of 8 inches. If doing a circular edging, the edging should be a minimum of 2 inches width. You can create your own design or use a published design.

The above meetings are all up in the air.  The board will have to discuss how the August meeting went before making solid plans for any future meetings.  If anyone has other ideas for meeting places, please let me know. 

Happy lacing
