Notes on the format:
I readjusted the Spanish bobbinlace playlists to get a more equal number in each.
You might note that there are some strange things in Ireland – Irish Crochet, since IC shows up in many countries. I plan to leave them there until there are enough to justify breaking off into IC in a specific country.
In the future I think I’ll leave all the updates for the month in a separate folder for a month or two as well as putting them in their proper playlists. Even with the Excel and pdf catalogs, it can still be difficult to find new videos.  Unfortunately it’s too late to do that for September.
I found new search terms for Spanish bobbinlace, Palilleiras and Encaixe, which produced a number of videos that I missed before. And I’m always picking up a few earlier ones for many subjects that didn’t make it in previous searches.

Here are a few new interesting things:
– The ‘Edwardian Farm’ videos covering Honiton Lace with Pat Perryman in period costume are now available in the United Kingdom – bobbinlace playlist.  This is well known in the UK, but this seems to be the first time we’ve had access to it in the US.
– Be sure to check out the wonderful ‘Needle lace from vakifli village’ in Armenia – Needlelace. This is the only one showing this technique that I’ve been able to find.
– The installation of the outdoor ‘Tsunami’ piece from the Love Lace exhibition is now on the Australia – Museums playlist, ‘Janet Echelman Tsunami 1.26 Installation Slideshow’
– The only folk dances using bobbinlace pillows I’ve ever seen are now in the Brazil – Bobbinlace playlist.  For example, see ‘Balé Popular,Mulher Rendeira,São João do Piaui’, and ‘Dança Mulher Rendeira.mov’, that I find just a little disturbing.
– There are now 445 videos on tatting. So how can you stand out amongst the competition? Try nonsolocrochet’s (in Tatting 3) technique – look like you aren’t wearing any clothes. Very effective, and she’s a great tatter too!
