Comments and contributions to the LaceNews blog are most welcome. If you would like to make a contribution, please contact me directly at LaceNews@gmail.com. All contributions and comments are currently monitored, and this may change in the future if a suitable input format can be designed.
You can also tweet me on @lacenews. Recent tweets are posted at the bottom of the righthand column of the blog, along with a follow button. The tweets are meant to be a more informal look at the behind-the-scene workings of the blog, but not so important that they warrant a formal post. It’s a chance to give the site a more personal touch.
For the LaceNews Channel, please let me know if you find any videos missing from the current playlists. They will be included in the regular monthly update. I also welcome suggestions for better organization of the playlists. Write to LaceNews@gmail.com, or tweet, or put a comment on the LaceNews Channel page. This will also go directly to my YouTube email account.
Dr. Laurie Waters is a lace researcher, collector, and maker located in Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA. Now that I am retired from work (April 2012), I supposedly have a lot more time to work on the various LaceNews resources (well, that was the idea. I’m catching up). Some readers have also figured out that my personal email is firstname.lastname@example.org, and that I have another seldom-read blog called “Travels with Laurie”, http://tinyurl.com/ogy35gf.

Note: When I had this photo taken I brought along a copy of Pietro Loronzoni’s 1775 portrait of Mozart’s mother and told the photographer I wanted the same pose. How’s that for nerve. The jacket is by Doshi. The lace is an exact duplicate of a pattern in Sessa, 1561, and a postage-stamp size sample will soon be sent to the University of Arizona accelerator mass spectrometer for carbon dating.
