A Merry Christmas to our members, and to lacemakers everywhere.
Look out for details of our programme for 2018 coming early in the New Year.
Our last meeting of the year was a mix of festive food, drink and quizzes, with a look ahead to future lace events in 2018-19.
As usual, our members produced decorations for the Christmas tree festival held at St Peters Church in March. Thanks to those who helped produce such a splendid display of lace icicles.

Fenland Lacemakers were demonstrating today at the Makit Fenland Fair. The theme of our display was Autumn Colours.
This Thursday come along and make lace at our working evening. And don’t forget to bring along your items ready for the Autumn themed lace display at the Makit Fair on Saturday.
Four of our members, Sue Huckstep, Liz Baker, Pat Castlo and Kath Brandle had a very good day demonstrating lacemaking in the sunshine at Fen Ditton.
There was a lot of interest in the craft, with many children – both boys and girls – having a go on the practice pillows.
After the summer break, our next meeting is on Thursday 7 September when Jenny Lewin will be holding her ribbon embroidery workshop.
We will need to bring:
Basic sewing kit, scissors and embroidery threads.
Small embroidery hoop if you have one, but Jenny will bring some as well.
Jenny will make up small packs of fabric, ribbon and needles and there will be a charge of £2.00 for the materials.
Working evening Thursday 6 July at 7.30 pm.
A week after Haddenham we had some tables at the Hemingford Abbots Flower Festival.
