National Lacemaking Day

We celebrated the occasion by holding a lace demonstration and workshop at the Norris Museum in St Ives. A number of visitors successfully completed key ring tags, and were all very proud of their first piece of lace!

After the business matters were out of the way we worked on our latest projects. Some of us continued with the quadrant designs we began in April.

This Thursday’s meeting

The May meeting is our AGM and also a working evening.

Rewards of the raffle

This week Kath and Pat were able to present The Woodlands Centre with a cheque from the proceeds of our Lace Day raffle.

April Meeting

Design a Lace quadrant at our next evening meeting on 5 April.
Please bring the following equipment:

Scissors to cut paper, pencil and eraser and a Pritt stick glue if you have one!

If not, some scissors, glue and pencils will be available to share.

The design process will be simple and you should all end up with an individual design that will be ready to work.

Scenes of Lace Day

The second part of Rev Jayne Shepherd’s talk “Un travail magnifique” about her lace sabbatical trip through Europe, and our exhibition on the theme  A Touch of Colour.

March meeting cancelled

With the threat of snow and severe weather this week, it’s been decided to cancel the meeting on Thursday. See you all at Lace Day on the 10th!
