The 1982 Conference

In 1982 the Vancouver Lace Club hosted a lace conference on the UBC Campus. This was the first Canadian lacemaking conference, and was also the 29th conference of the International Old Lacers, Inc., a group now known as the International Organization of Lace, Inc.

Our club has some memorabilia from this conference, and we plan to upload some of it to this website, so that it is preserved and available for anyone to see. To start, we have found two paper placemats, used at the banquet. The placemats contain lace designs plus business advertisements from several of the fibre-related businesses we had available to us back then. Our club members enjoyed reminiscing about these businesses and we hope these images will be interesting to the rest of the Club.
