Fourth Quarter Fall Newsletter

November 2022


President’s Review of October Business Meeting


Well fall has finally arrived and we enjoyed our Milanese workshop with Louise. Some were making owls, some paisleys, some sunflowers, and some were completing previously begun pieces. As always, Louise was patient, kind and efficient. She kept us all moving forward. We enjoy working her creative designs.


We have been anxiously awaiting Arthiss’s weekly list of duplicate books. I hope you have added some new titles to your library. Arthiss added about 50 new titles to our library thanks to the generous donations of members and their families. She also has received $284 in donations for 60 duplicates. I think we can all agree that Arthiss is the best librarian ever!


The IOLI convention for 2023 will be held in Sparks/Reno Nevada from June 25 to July 2. There are still not many details on the IOLI website (internationalorganizationoflace.org) so keep an eye out.


The Christmas party will be held the second Saturday of December, the 10th at the library. We will begin setup at 11 and lunch at noon with lace exchanges, door prizes, and raffle following. Kelly will be coordinating food so let her know what you plan to bring. Stacy is coordinating decoration and requested that anyone that has a Christmas tablecloth bring it for the tables. She doesn’t like adding all that plastic to the landfill. Contact her if you have any questions. If you have a lace ornament you would like to hang on the tree for all to see bring it along.


Definition of the Lace Exchange: You make a piece of lace, put it in some sort of container/wrapping and sneakily set it on the table so no one knows whose it is. You’ll be given a number if you bring lace to share and after lunch those who have a number will take turns choosing a present and opening it for all to admire. All pieces of lace are cherished, simple or complex.


The door prizes are usually donated lace making items or whatever you think might interest your friends. You will receive a number that will be called to give you your turn to pick a door prize.


The raffle tickets are $1 each and you place one side of the ticket in the container in front of the item you would like to have and hold on to the other side. Then a number is drawn and you claim you prize if it is your number.


Next year the convention in Sparks/Reno is honoring members who are no longer with us. We thought of Lou Rilla Hughes, Pat Kuhler, Pat Maca, Velosta Jurick, Mary Ellen Beaty, Roz Dorkin, Ruth Hickman, Nancy Washburn, and Ruth Leatherwood. Most of these ladies were no longer attending meetings by the time I, and many of us, joined the group so we will be depending on those of you who knew them to share your memories, stories and photos of these ladies with us so that we can create a nice memory page. You can pick a person or persons to write about and collect additional information on them from others. If you don’t have photos we probably can find some in the Historian’s files. Or you can send your memories and we can compile them. Elena plans to write about Lou Rilla Hughes. I have received a few comments about other ladies but not enough to write a brief bio. I hope some of you can assist.


Our last item of new business was a discussion about hosting an IOLI convention. IOLI provides a lot of assistance to the host group and the other lace groups in Texas will surely help us. Sherry Mathers has asked if we would enjoy hosting the 2025 convention in the Dallas area. It was decided that we would gather more information about what would be required of us, disseminate that information, and then vote at the January 31st business meeting. There will be a form to fill out notifying IOLI that we have an interest. I will send that information around as soon as I get it.

President’s letter – Aug. 2022


Hello my fellow lace-makers. Hope that you are getting a lot of lace made in a well air conditioned spot.


We held our business meeting last Tuesday at the library and via zoom. Thank you to

 those who were able to attend. It was good to see you all.


Louise’s Milanese workshop will be October 22, 23, and 24. Kathy Ogle will be contacting

 you with pricing and details soon so that you can make your plans. It is always an

 enjoyable workshop as we have some time with one another and an excellent, patient

 teacher with very creative patterns for us to choose from. I hope you will be one of the

 12 that than can join the workshop.


Arthiss was delighted to see all the wonderful books that Pat Kuhler’s daughter, Amy

, donated to our library. There were 125 items! About 50 of them are new to our library

 and Arthiss will add those to the library and come up with a plan to distribute the

 duplicates.


Lisa, Susan, Sherry, Heather, Karen, Stacy, and I enjoyed the IOLI convention in Mesa.

 Next year the convention is at The Nugget in Sparks/Reno, Nevada from June 25 to

 July 2, 2023.


If you recall, we honored Rowena, Elena and Opal as our members over 80 this year. That

 gave us some good memories for our Historian to file. Next year the convention in

 Sparks/Reno is honoring members who are no longer with us. We thought of Lou Rilla

 Hughes, Pat Kuhler, Pat Maca, Velosta Jurick, Mary Ellen Beaty, Roz Dorkin, Ruth

 Hickman, Nancy Washburn, and Ruth Leatherwood. Most of these ladies were no l

onger attending meetings by the time I, and many of us, joined the group so we will be

 depending on those of you who knew them to share your memories, stories and photos of

 these ladies with us so that we can create a nice memory page. You can pick a person or

 persons to write about and collect additional information on them from others. If you

 don’t have photos we probably can find some in the Historian’s files. Or you can send

 your memories and we can compile them.


At convention we received our IOLI certificate in recognition of 1,093 volunteer hours

 promoting lace and lace-making. These hours continue Dallas Lace Society’s certificatio

n as a member of IOLI. The following is a list from our by-laws of activities that can be

 reported to Debbie as demonstration/volunteer hours:


Demonstration hours:

Making lace at public venues

Teaching lace to the public


Volunteer hours:

DLS Lace-ins

Phone calls and emails for DLS and/or IOLI

Minutes for them DLS quarterly meetings

DLS Newsletter

Membership book preparation and maintenance

Party or class preparation and cleanup

Maintaining and audition the financial concerns for DLS

Making lace for sale at DLS venues

Hospitality work

Wishing you all good lace days and no broken threads.

President’s letter - May 2022


Hello dear lace-making friends. I thought I would give you a little summary of our April quarterly meeting in case you were unable to join us live or by zoom.
I imagine all of you have received, via electronic or mail, a copy of our new directory. Thank you to Kathy and Jackie for such a very nice directory. It was a fantastic idea to add photos and Jackie did her photo-shopping magic on the cover to show the Christmas ornaments we had made for display. Great job.
We have been working on the ‘Bobbin Bungees’ gifts for IOLI convention. We have a little over 300 ready to go but we decided to make 300 more so we can give two per person. We’ll be working on them at upcoming meetings. Arthiss and Jackie will get supplies ready and us organized once again. Thanks to all that are helping.
Some of us have also been tatting and bobbin lacing the 1/8th music note for the 2023 Nashville IOLI convention. If you need details on joining that let me know and I will forward you their instructions.
Just another reminder about Louise’s Milanese workshop this coming fall. It will be October 22, 23, and 24.
At the upcoming convention they are preparing a display of notebooks to honor lacers over 80. They are asking all lace groups to send in text about and photos of lace makers and their lace.
We will be honoring three who have contributed so much to our group, Rowena, Elena, and Opal. More to come in a future email.
We have two new members. Amber Pyle has been teaching herself some lace-making skills and is a very accomplished tatter and needle lacer. She lives in Granbury so I appreciate her making the long trek to come to our meetings.

Lilly Allison of Irving joined too and brought Rowena with her. We were so excited to see Rowena and meet Lilly. Rowena has been teaching Lilly Torchon and she is a very good student. Welcome Amber and Lilly, I’m sure we all look forward to getting to know you more.

Beautiful lace making to you all,

Marilyn
