Dear Lace Members,
      The last of our meetings for 2020 was held November 21st.  Our meetings for next year will continue on the zoom platform. Zoom meeting info will be emailed a few days prior to the meeting.   If you are not able to attend the virtual meeting please stay in contact with us. An email letting the group know how you are doing and what you are working on.  Photos of your current project would be nice as well.  If you have show and tell for the meeting, you can put it on your computer to share the screen or email to me and I can share it.
       I don’t know how many watched the UN CON seminars that were posted by IOLI.  I watched Pierre Fouchet’s talk and found it very interesting.  I also watched Elena Kanagy-Loux’s talk as well.  I follow the Brooklyn Lace Guild on Facebook and find them very interesting.  One of her suggestions to the Lace Guilds was to have a presence on social media.  We already have a very  active Facebook page but she recommended to also have an instagram account.  I see IOLI is working towards a page and I found other lacemakers and groups around there.  I started an instagram page…we are Lacemakers_of_Illinois.  We have 81 followers so far. I could use more pictures of the lace and our activities if you have them and are willing to have them up on Instagram email them to me. If you already have an instagram account then follow us and share your pictures that way.  People do comment…so this may also be a good place to recommend  or remark about books that you have used or are interested in using.
The pandemic has pushed us into the realm of the "virtual everything”. I know that many Lace teachers are exploring virtual classes and workshops. 
         Don’t forget to work on your Tallies…bookmarks, and yardage. Looking forward to seeing you … virtually that is. Kudos to Diane Haber for her lovely tree with soooo many tallies.

  Stay healthy…
President Kanella
