Lace Getaway 2020 and Next Meeting

Our next Club meeting will be on Thursday, November 28th, at our regular meeting place and time. (details)

I have also added the information for the 2020 Lace Getaway to our website; you can find it shown under “Events in 2020” on the right-hand side of this page.

Updates for 2020

Just a quick message to say that I have updated the Events links (to the right of this message) to reflect the upcoming 2020 events that I know about – the Winter Lace Conference in California, and the OIDFA conference in Estonia. The IOLI conference will be in Mesa, Arizona (near Phoenix) but there doesn’t seem to be a specific webpage for it yet. I will enter a link when the conference webpage is live.

If you know of any upcoming events I haven’t linked to, let me know and I will include them in the list.

A Great Lace Day!

Yesterday’s lace day was a great success, thanks to our crowd of guests! A couple of people drove up from Washington State, we had some local lacemakers who can’t join us at our regular meetings, some people who dropped in for a little while, to see what was going on, and lots of people from the Abbotsford and Chilliwack area. We thank them all for coming!

Irene put up a fine display of Christmas cards she has sent and received, made with photos of handmade lace, and we all got some good ideas for the upcoming holidays. We also had a table filled with lace-costumed dolls made by our doll-maker member, Trudean. Last week at our regular meeting we had an offer of home-made soup – thanks, Ruth – that really added to the day, as no-one had to trail out into an unfamiliar neighbourhood looking for lunch.

This might become an annual event! Thanks again to everyone who came and everyone who helped.

Lace Day! and Meeting

Our regular club meeting for October is tomorrow, Thursday October 23rd. (Details)

Our Lace Day is on Saturday! Please come if you can – we’re hoping as many lacemakers as possible will come to see us, to make lace and schmooze lace. We love to see new friends and old. The Lace Day is in our regular meeting room, and the event runs from 10 am to 4 pm. (Details)

Hope to see you over the next few days!

Lace Day 2019!

Hello Everyone –

Announcing a Lace Day!

So many lacemakers came to our tea last year, that we decided to host a Lace Day this fall. It will be at our regular meeting place, and as it is on a Saturday, we hope that many people who aren’t normally able to come to our meetings, will have a chance to bring their lace pillows, tatting, knitting, or whatever, and join us for the day. Full details are on our poster, here.

We will provide coffee and tea and some of our fine home baking. This is a full-day event, so you might like to bring your own lunch, or plan to buy lunch nearby.

The lace day is from 10 am to 4 pm at our regular meeting place in New Westminster. It is free, but we will have a donation jar for any of you who wish to help us defray our costs.
