The IOLI is by far the largest lace organization in the United States. The IOLI Mary McPeek scholarship is available to help with tuition costs, although it appears the due date of 1/1/14 for scholarship application is unfortunately past. Keep it in mind for 2015.
There is a contest associated with the convention, which will be the subject of a separate post.  This post will be updated as more information becomes available.
