Eve

Welcome.  Please read all the NOTES.  They explain our policies, the laces we include, and how the software works.  We do have a group for Mediterranean knotted lace, called OYA.  You can join it, and any other groups that interest you.  There is a long list of resources on the opening page of the OYA group.  We also have 2 albums of photos.  I look forward to seeing your efforts.  If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.  

Also you might want to look at another online discussion group that I administer.  It includes your other lace related interests.
