Louise Colgan is a lacemaker, designer, and teacher with experience in a broad range of Bobbin Lace techniques. She began making lace in 1985 and has been teaching for over 25 years. She is a Past President of the I.O.L.I. As an instructor, she travels extensively around the U.S., teaching at many regional conferences and annual I.O.L.I. Conventions. During the Fall of 2012, she taught workshops at the Australian Lace Guild’s National Conference in Sydney and in Tasmania. Louise has exhibited her work both locally and internationally. Her designs have been presented in the LACE EXPRESS magazine and the I.O.L.I. BULLETIN. Additionally, she has published three books of original patterns and has made an instructional video on Milanese Lace through Hensel Productions.

Pat Pike began her lace making in 1987 while a member of the Embroiderers Guild of America, Buffalo Chapter. She joined the Heritage Village Lace Guild in 1997. Pat makes a variety of the lace techniques, including tatting, bobbin lace, and needle lace, and specializes in designing Romanian Point Lace. Her first Romanian design, a Christmas Candle, won a 2002 I.O.L.I. contest. She has taught numerous classes for the Lace Guild. Karey Solomon has published Tatting Times, a journal of patterns and tatting news, for over 25 years. She is the author of more than 25 collections of tatting patterns and is the tatting editor for the Bulletin of the International Organization of Lace, Inc. Karey teaches internationally and for nineteen years has organized the International Tatting Seminars in the Finger Lakes. Nancy Pye has traveled extensively to research and study laces, costume and textile-related print sources, which represent important milestones in the development of lace. Her personal study of textiles has focused on the social history of lace and its timeline. She sought to discover answers to who were the designers, craftsmen, and lacemakers; who were their patrons; and which historical, artistic and fashion events influenced lace design. Nancy has taught lace identification clinics and courses at various venues such as the I.O.L.I. convention in Montreal and the Textile Museum of Canada, and she has lectured at needlework and lacemaking guilds, libraries, and museums in both Canada and the United States.
