June Meeting and Lace In:
The May meeting was great fun (The sun came out!) and lots of lacing was
done so we are planning
another Mini-Lace In! This will be our last meeting before summer
break. Bring your lace and get your anniversary gear.
A Sad Farewell to Barbara Ann Warner:
The Guild said goodbye to a founding member on April 2nd: Barbara Ann
Warner, age 76, died on March 28, 2016, following a brief hospitalizaton at
Fauquier Hospital. It was unexpected and deeply sorrowful turn of
events. While we know that she has moved on to her next adventure, we will
miss her laughter and vivacious spirit. 2016 Meeting Schedule: The 2016 meeting schedule for
through early summer has been posted on the Meetings & Events page.
New members are welcome anytime throughout the year. The membership fee is pro-rated, so if you join half-way through the year, for example, you only pay half the yearly membership fee. Join at the September meeting and pay only $12 for the remainder of the year.

The 2017 IOLI Convention will take place in Philadelphia, PA. Hosts: The Liberty Lacers.
