Lighthouse Lacers

September 2022 Lighthouse Lacers Newsletter

Greetings    NO MEETING on September 10th. The August 13th meeting was held between 1 and 3 PM at Ocenco, Inc, 10224 82nd Avenue, Pleasant Prairie, WI.  Eight members were present.  The topic was Magic Threads.  Jan demonstrated this as a tatter and Sylvia with bobbin lace.  Sylvia made flowers and tallies for the petals and connected threads when making a Bruge background. Handouts are available. Our show and tell was from Jan who attended Tat Days in Indiana (dorset button, angels and trees) and Sylvia who designed unique ribbon trees - design to be finalized and sent to Lace for publication. We also had many ornaments and the tree topper for our hospice tree on display. Trish will buy the tree. IOLI news - the 2023 flower is the forget me not, a five petal flower that looks like a mouse ear. Colors are blue, white, or pink with a yellow dot in center.
