Hello All! What a great time! I enjoyed Allie's Idrija class & finished my
tri-color sea star. I made plenty of mistakes but I'm still very pleased with
the results. There were more than a few challenges working open method on a
bolster & controlling the color thru all the sewings! This narrow tape style
was influenced by the Italians so there are a few similarities with Cantu.
Overall, FLLG does a great job--especially selecting interesting classes. When
you have difficulty winnowing down the list to a first, second & third choice,
you know you're in trouble! This year, I took some time on Friday afternoon to
visit the Cornell University Mann library where the lace books reside. They
have a nice collection of lace publications & it's worth making time to visit.
Their online catalog makes it easy to create your "must see" list ahead of
time. I was able to research some back issues of Lace magazine (Lace Guild UK)
& browse in the stacks. Other lace books in their !
special collection require advance notice & their online staff provides
generous help. For those of us who missed IOLI this year, Ithaca was also an
opportunity to reconnect with long-time lace friends, make new ones & put faces
with names from Arachne. Looking forward to Ithaca 2017! Sincerely, Susan
