Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, the laces we include, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. We do have one for BEGINNERS, which would be helpful to you, I think. Its opening page has a recommended books list, and links to good online information. We also have some free tutorials written or filmed by our members. Look at the gray bar above, click on TUTORIALS. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
