A great end to the lacemaking year. We took first place in the popular vote at the Christmas Tree Festival at St Peter’s Church in March. Our tree was decorated with lace poppies in different patterns made by members, to commemorate the armistice 100 years ago.
We enjoyed festive (non-alcoholic!) drinks and nibbles, while trying to master the art of making decorative Chinese good luck knots with red and green cord.
Our November meeting was spent viewing Kath’s slides and goodies purchased at this year’s OIDFA event in Zaandam.

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!
