A lace group in Cambridgeshire since 1982

Planned meeting on 2 April

A message from our chairperson, Kath:-

In view of the escalating Coronavirus situation and the government guidelines on meetings and social distancing I think it is best if we do not meet on Thursday 2nd April.

This would have been a working evening, and I’m sure that you are all able to get on with your lace in the comfort of your own home.

If you need any help do get in touch by email or phone. I’m sure that pictures and diagrams can probably sort out most queries.

Keep safe.


Lace Day 

A very interesting talk on threads by Barbara Brooks, contributed to another enjoyable Fenland Lace Day. The display was on the theme 2020 Vision. 

See more images of the event.

Telling Tales!

For our meeting in March,  bring a piece of lace or a lace related item to show to the group. It might be a piece you’ve made, bought, or been given which has a story attached to its origin.

Thursday 5 March at 7.30 pm

This was our colourful display at the 2019 Makit Fenland Lace Fair.

Looking forward to November

Materials for the ‘Little Trees in s’Gravenmoer’ workshop on the 7 November are:

Lacemaking equipment.

22 pairs wound with linen 60/2, Anchor 40, Tanne 50 or similar thread maximum of 30cm on each Bobbin.

1 gimp pair wound with Perle 5 or Perle 8, contrast or matching maximum 20cm on each bobbin.


Denise showed us how to make necklaces and bracelets out of looped beads. It was a very quiet evening with everyone concentrating hard on counting beads!

October Fest

Firstly, our October 3rd meeting will be a beading workshop with Denise Bending. Denise will provide all the equipment needed, but if you have beading needles or a beading mat, you could bring them along.

Two days later, you can replenish all your lace supplies at the Makit Fair. That’s on Saturday 5 October at Burgess Hall, St Ives.

For those of us who attend the Monday class, the first session of the new term starts on 7 October.
