Dear lacing friends:

I took part in this again this year, both Sat & Sun, this past weekend.  We had a lot of interest and I passed out lots of NELG "cards" with our website information.  We really didn't have a lot of child interest, but had quite a bit of adult interest.  So I gave some lessons to someone who had brought in her "lacis bobbin lace kit".  So I parted with one of my Piet pillows and a spool of lace thread to get her started.  Cherry is a spinner, knitter, felter and cook.  Again, we had a lot of interest.  The only thing that would have made it nicer would have been some other lacers.  I recommended Evelyn Gant & Fletcher Farms as well but honestly don't know if she is still teaching there.  I also met a couple of crafters who were really interested and are from MA and could go to the Sturbridge meeting without any problem.  I came back with some ideas for Sat programs as well.

    Linda -
    Pass along the Saturday Program Ideas to Bryce - I just sent her a list of them and she and we can use more.

    The interest is out there! We need an organization that also has lessons. Getting individuals started is the key.

    Thank you again!,

    Hi Linda,
    I'm very glad to hear that you had a good time again this year. This is a very special event, organized by some very special people. I was really disappointed that my move prevented me from attending this year.
