A picture is a thousand words

 "You don't make a photograph, you make it." Ansel Adams
... so he said.  It's true.  Over the last several years, we at NELG have made an extra effort to collect pictures from events, local gatherings and especially when we are in the public showing our lace.

Last weekend, several of us were at the MA Sheep and Woolcraft in Cunnington.  Thanks to Carolyn W. and Sr. Cathy and yours truly for braving the real cold and wet conditions.  It paid off, as it does as we met lots of people, heard stories, and we able to show many individuals about lace.  The bonus was the Hampshire Gazette reporter Sarah Crosby came by to take pictures speak with us. Follow this link below as it shows us working the demo.  It appeared in the Hampshire Gazette today.  There was a blurb. a quote, and some great pictures!  

... so he said ... and so we did.  

Thanks to Sarah Crosby for the article and pictures.

    What a great article! Two mentions of lacemaking, one mention of the New England Lace Group, and two photographs - one of Sr. Cathy and one of Patty's hands. Can't ask for better than that!

    Patty's absolutely right - this is what volunteering is all about and why we should get out there as much as we can to educate the public; otherwise, lacemaking might become a lost art.

      Thanks Jill! by the way - the google crawl picked up this blog post! Yippie

      You are so right - being in the public is what it is about. Now to take it one step further --- if we are going to be present --- a simple press release can be sent to the area's newspapers? Just a thought!
