As well as a witty talk about her experiences with the English language by Linda Scoles, we had a good mix of traders and the chance to sit and make lace throughout the day. Our raffle raised £500 for the local branch of Parkinson’s UK.
The theme of the day was Space – celebrating 60 years since Sputnik launched. The display items made by members provided an unusual twist on traditional lacemaking designs – less ‘hearts and flowers’, more ‘stars and rockets!’
Are you a lapsed lacemaker? Or a budding beginner who would like to learn this fascinating craft? It’s really not as difficult as it looks!
