    Hello.. I’m Ellie also known as Hummingbird Ellie when I hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2014. I’m going back in 2017 to hike again but this time with my good friend and “sister” lace maker Cherre. We will be getting off the trail to visit local towns along the trail and would love to meet with other “sister” lace makers who live nearby. What a wonderful highlight that would be to our hike. I’m not sure how we can do this. Facebook and Blogs came to mind. I’m sending out this request for “help” if you have any ideas. We will be hiking 2186 miles from Georgia to Maine beginning in April and ending in October. Thank you, Ellie

      Dear Ellie, There are many lace groups along the Appalachian trail. I would suggest that you join the International Organization of Lace at http://www.internationalorganizationoflace.org/
      Dues are $30 per year. They will send you a members handbook that includes contact information for every lace guild in the US and overseas. There are also local and regional guilds that you can access. Most guilds are open to visitors. Membership in IOLI also gives you a subscription to their journal (4 issues a year) and, most importantly, access to their library. They host a convention every year (this July in Indianapolis). IOLI has a NING at http://laceioli.ning.com/ that anyone can read but you must be a member to post. NCRL has a Facebook page (just search Facebook for North Carolina Regional Lacers).
      Good luck on your trip, Michelle
