The Dallas Lace Society
Second Quarter Newsletter
August 2018

Letter from the President

Dear DLS Members,
Sherry, Heather and Amy send their many thanks to all DLS members who helped with the IOLI convention. They were very grateful for our support in creating a fabulous convention experience. The flowers looked fantastic the way they arranged them on the tables and guests were excited to be able to take home a vase of three.

Oh my, were the water bottle holders ever a hit! People who missed them at registration were hunting us down to get one! Your efforts were very much appreciated.

Our Milanese workshop with Louise is fast approaching and we still have a spot or two left. The fee is $120. You can reserve your spot by  emailing Marilyn (mjwaisanen@icloud.com) then sending a check made out to Dallas Lace Society to Marilyn Waisanen at 1918 Olive St. Apt 801, Dallas, 75201. Marilyn will have a packet of project material for you.

Thank you to those who were able to represent us at the Plano Quilt Show August 11th. Our next demonstration will be at the State Fair on October 12. I think Dorothy has the afternoon shift filled but contact her about volunteering if you have an interest. It is Children’s Day at the fair, so it should be busy.

Just talked with Sandy Owenby and she is adjusting to Louisiana life but missing all of us lacers. She is going to start teaching knit and crochet classes where she lives – you had to know she would get busy fast. She is still making bobbin lace and trying to find bobbin lacers.
