Lacemakers are very sensible people, and in view of the cold temperatures today and the snow we had last night, every one of our regular attendees has announced she will not be coming today. Our meeting is cancelled. I hope everyone has a great month and gets lots of lace done!
Our February meeting is this coming Thursday, February 22nd, in the East Hastings Community Centre (details). Last month we took some pictures of UFOs, as some of us are trying to see how many UFOs we can get off our pillows during 2018. I’m happy to report that, thanks to Olympic curling, I took one of my UFOs off the pillow this morning! Hoping others are closing in on their goals as well.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the meeting.
Just a reminder that our first meeting of the New Year is tomorrow, January 25, from 10 am to 1 pm at the East Hastings Community Centre’s downstairs boardroom. Some of us will be starting a simple Christmas project, but you don’t have to take part in that project to enjoy yourself at the meeting. Anyone with UFO’s (unfinished objects) on their pillows is welcome to bring them. We will take a picture and then a picture of your finished piece at the end of the year!
Hope you all had a good Christmas and are in the process of having a Happy New Year! Our next Club meeting will be January 25th. (Meeting details).
As last year, the people who came to the Christmas luncheon picked a Christmas-themed project to start at the January meeting. This is intended to be a fun project so we will have something ready for next Christmas – there’s no pressure if you don’t want to join in – anybody at the January meeting can work on whatever project they want. I hope to see you there!
The “Conferences” panel on the right-hand side of this page has been updated with a link to the Victoria Lace Club’s page about next year’s Lace Getaway, April 16 – 18, 2018. The theme for the lace exhibit is “Lace From the Ground Up”.
We had a great meeting last Thursday; we had a few new magazines and books to look at, plus lots of good conversation about our ongoing projects. Many of our members are working on Christmas lace exchanges, like the Canadian Lacemaker Gazette’s bangle exchange, or one of the online Christmas lace exchanges.
During the meeting we set the date for our traditional Christmas lunch: December 14th, 11 a.m. at the usual place, The White Spot in Royal City Centre, 610 – 6th Street, New Westminster. (map) We’d love to see you there! Do let us know if you’re planning to come.
Our next Club meeting is on November 23rd. Details of our regular meeting place and time are in the “About Us” section (tab is on the left, above).
It’s cool, it’s rainy, it’s time to make lace!
Our October meeting is this coming Thursday, October 26 – at our regular place and time. We’ll be making lace and talking about our next demonstration possibilities, about our Christmas lace projects, and setting the time and place for our traditional Christmas luncheon. Looking forward to seeing you there!
