The 2019 Getaway!

Next year’s Getaway will be hosted by the Denman & District Lace Club, and held in Courtenay (Comox) on Vancouver Island. Many of you will remember the Getaway in Courtenay a couple of years ago – please note the venue has changed to a larger location in a beautiful setting.

This will be a special Getaway, as it is the Denman & District Lace Club’s 100th Anniversary! They have provided us with the Getaway information (including registration information) which I have put on a separate page in this website. You can get to the Getaway information by clicking on “2019 Getaway” in the menu bar above this message, or you can click on the link under “Events in 2019” on the right-hand side of this page.

Hope to see you there!


Christmas Lunch!

Our annual Christmas lunch at the White Spot is coming up this Thursday, December 6th. The White Spot is inside the Royal Centre Mall, but also has street frontage on 6th Avenue near 6th Street. From our regular meeting-place at the Church, you would go 2 blocks up (to 6th Avenue), turn right, go another 2 blocks, and you will see the White Spot on the other side of the street. (map)

We will gather outside the restaurant’s entrance (inside the Mall) at 11:15. The White Spot’s lunch menu is here.



November Meeting, Conference Page Update

Our November meeting is next Thursday, November 22,  from 10 to 1 at our usual meeting place in the basement of the Free Methodist Church, 320 – 8th Street, New Westminster. Please note that the door from the parking lot is sometimes not unlocked before 10 a.m. If you arrive early and don’t want to wait outside, it is possible to reach the basement via the main church entrance.

The website for the IOLI conference in Spokane has been updated, and now has clearer navigation.

A Little Explanation Is In Order

Hello Again!

Yesterday I mentioned that the link to next year’s IOLI in Spokane had been updated. As many of us aren’t very computer-savvy, I thought I’d let you know how the navigation works.

  • Bring up the Spokane home page by clicking on our link.
  • At the top right of the home page you will find the word Home with a down-arrow beside it.
  • Click on that and it brings up a menu of all of the pages that we expect to see on a convention website!

I hope the website administrators will realize that clicking on that little arrow is not intuitive, and give us some better navigation in the upcoming weeks.

Next Meeting and Next Year’s News

Our next meeting will be this coming Thursday, October 25, at our regular location.

Will will discuss all sorts of things, including next year’s IOLI conference, which will be within driving distance in Spokane, Washington. I have updated the conference link (at left on this page), now that the website is live. Full details (classes, etc) aren’t available yet, but you can access the hotel information.

The First Fall Meeting

Last Saturday’s Tea was a resounding success! It was so nice to meet new lacemakers, and re-connect with some of our old friends.

Now – down to business! Our regular meetings are starting up, and the September meeting is this coming Thursday. We’ll have tea, of course, and if you can bring a few servings of some sweet or savoury snack to share, that would be good, too. Meeting details.

I hope to see you there.

Tea Tomorrow

Yes, tomorrow is the Lacemaker’s Tea! It has come so quickly; we are all hustling with baking and making and decorating. All we need is you! Tickets are $10 and are available at the door.

Please come to tea tomorrow:

The Lacemaker’s Tea
