Hello Alex,

Thanks for writing and welcome to the Apache OpenOffice project!

I must admit I know very little about lace.  But I saw someone making
lace in the Netherlands once, by hand, and it looked extremely
complicated.  I'll stick with macramé  ;-)

On the volunteer side, and since you do have good writing skills, we
do have a documentation team that can use some more help:

http://openoffice.apache.org/orientation/intro-doc.html

Another idea is to simply use Apache OpenOffice for your ordinary
computer tasks and keep notes on any tips and tricks that you think
would be useful for users like you.  That could form the nucleus of an
article (or something longer).

Regards,

-Rob
