I remember when I first discovered Arachne, exploring "lace" through an internet searcher as Yahoo, it was back in 2000. I miss those years of my first steps in lacemaking and the excitement of contacting lacemakers of all over the world in a group that took the bobbin lace from a formal point of view. A group always willing to help and share their knowledge. Right now I come to mind lacemakers like Bev Walker, Miriam Gidron, Jeri Ames, Helen Ulrich, Lorelley Halley, Lorri Ferguson, Adele Shaak, Shirley Trigelles, Alice "in Oregon", Jean Leader, Pat Hallam, Tamara Duvall, Liz Reynolds, and so many others... I think remember that was Liz who launched, and has been keepÃ¬ng on all these years the server "Majordomo", correct me if I'm wrong.... Thank you for letting us stay in touch all this time, and Avital for moderating us. It is true that other social media as Instagram, and especially Facebook,Â has caused us to disperse,Â especially for the advantage that represents to share visually laces and techniques by pictures and videos , however it is also true that many of us are still here. A very especial thought for all the Arachneans who are no longer here. Kind regards and a Happy Anniversary for all of us!
