Lace is Everywhere

Just back from my presentation of the "Lace is Everywhere"  at the Tolland Library, CT.  There were about 25 ladies present for the talk.  Thank you to Jeanne Goodwin for making the introduction so that this event was booked.  Thanks to Jeanne,  Sharon S. and Marjorie D. for attending and showing how bobbin lace is made.  Special thanks to Cressy - he photographed, videoed, more than a gig of pic's from the session.  Watch later on for the pictures of the event.  Of course thanks to the Tolland Library and the Friends of the Tolland Library for believing in the topic.

It was a great day ---- very chilly yet the folks came to hear about the lace.  Many of the attendees were from the three fiber related groups in town and library patrons.  The Library and the Friends seemed to be very pleased with the turnout.  I may book another event with them in the spring.  There was lots of interest in tatting - the difference between shuttle and needle.  There were takers at the try me pillow....  yes.... 2 over 3, and before you could really count - they were saying cross & twist.

All in all - a great day for the Tolland Library and a great day talking about Lace.
