IOLI (International Old Lacers Inc) convention which is held at the end of July or beginning of August and came twice to Paducah, KY, to teach a workshop for the HLG (Heartland Lace Guild). She arrived in Virginia Wednesday from Amsterdam for a Thursday, Friday, Saturday workshop here in CrossRidge in Glen Allen. We had a great time. Here Lia talks to the 6 Schneeberger students while Mary is listening in.
Thanks, Lia, for teaching us so patiently !!!
Pattern # 2 under the pins.
I tried a new chicken salad recipe ... and it is a keeper! Find the 'Holiday Chicken Salad' here. I highly recommend it. Let me know what you think about it.
18 hours of learning went really fast. I think everybody really liked it.
Then Lia could relax a little. She is a very good sport and Saturday evening she even went with us to our church's fish fry event.
At the end of the lecture this fellow CrossRidger showed us the lace she had made 45 years ago.
And this concluded the 'working' part of Lia's visit. We talked a lot about lace and everything else. I got some 'private' lesson just because she likes doing it. And we got a surprise in the mail off to her husband Guus. Tomorrow after lunch she will get on her way to California to teach somebody else. What a wonderful talent and so generous with it. Thank you, Lia!
