The Northern New Mexico Museum of Lace (NNMML) is home to a private wide-ranging collection of handmade lace
and associated items. Although currently a virtual resource, a permanent home is being investigated.
In the meantime, research is happening, exhibitions are being held, and visitors are always welcome!

12/23/2021 I did a complete rework of the Mechlin page, all caught up with those laces!

12/15/2021 I'm steadily catching up on cataloging. I've also added some copyright information on the images since I'm starting to see things from the museum when I google various lace types. I'd just like to know how these are getting shown.

Check it out. I'll add more, starting with this directory.
I've also reworked the pointers to add one for the NNMML Home Page, and renamed 'Home' to 'Collections'. It will take a long time to change this for all the pages!

08/08/2021 Reworked the "Advertising, Collectibles, Kitsch" section under "Index by Subject". Moved things around a a lot.
Workng on the Vermeer special topic section, after that all corrections will be done!
Also reorganized this announcements section so most recent dates are at the top.
7:51 PM, just finished correcting the Vermeers, so now the entire Collections page is good to go!

08/05/2021 Corrections are complete for the Country index, now working on the Subject index. This morning I completely re-did the "Lace Exhibitions Archive" which wasn't working at all.
I also added this box for streaming announcements, it is supposed to have a scrollbar at the right when I overflow the box. Seemed to be working when I tested it.
Now I'm trying to figure out how to get a Contact form on the site. And I really wish that Dreamweaver had a decent spellchecker.

07/20/2021 The website is finally up!!! Not perfect, but at least it's a start. Many of the topics will be finalized soon.
