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.
