In 1982 the Vancouver Lace Club hosted the annual conference of the International Old Lacers, Inc., on the UBC campus. We still have some paper memorabilia from that Conference, and as it is becoming fragile with time, we decided these pieces should be made available to our members – and preserved – by scanning and uploading them to this website. We have therefore added a page – The 1982 Conference – under the History link (under “About Us”) on our home page.
We have uploaded scans of two 11″ x 17″ paper placemats that were used at the Banquet at that conference. These placemats provide a nostalgic look at our amateur pre-digital graphic arts capabilities (!) as well as business advertising from the time. Sadly, most of these businesses are long gone, but we are happy to have this remembrance of them.
You can see these scans on the 1982 conference page, or click here.
