THE BULLETIN (Bulletin OIDFA) is the quarterly magazine of the organization. Its articles reflect the international nature of OIDFA both in authorship and subject matter, and typically cover topics such as the description and history of lace from particular countries. There are also pieces about major exhibitions, museums and prominent lacemakers. Each issue contains either a pattern (such as the ones found on the “From the Bulletin” page) or an article from one of the OIDFA Work Study Groups about its research. There are also book reviews, sometimes other patterns and, of course, information and news about OIDFA itself. Each article is in both English and French. For the flavour of the magazine peruse the table of contents of a recent issue.
The current Editor is Michel Bouvot, who welcomes submission of articles, patterns, events, and book reviews from any member. Michel is also the point of contact for potential advertisers; rates are available here. For enquiries about missing bulletins, however, please email Subscriptions.
