Many thanks to all those who joined us at our Textile Open Day on Saturday 6 October and to all those members who helped to make the day a success. We made at least £200 for Sightsavers Charity.
Our next meeting will be held on Saturday 3 November; members will have the opportunity to make Christmas decorations. You will be supplied with fabrics and patterns to make either a Christmas stocking, about six inches long, or a heart. If you don't feel like sewing, glue the pieces together to make your chosen shape. Raid your cupboards and bring along glitter, beads, threads, buttons etc - whatever takes your fancy - to decorate your stocking or heart. Audrey is hoping that everyone will take part and let their imagination run riot, because this is not a serious exercise but a fun day.
Remember to bring your pieces of Bucks Point lace for the exhibition.
Preston Lacemakers are a friendly group of people who meet to share their enthusiasm and enjoyment in the art and craft of lace, in all its variations. Our group includes young and old and beginners to experienced. Throughout the year we have talks about and workshops in both lace and other craft techniques. We also promote lace through exhibitions and giving demonstrations.
