Many thanks to Rubina Porter MBE, who gave us an amazing talk at the last meeting, all about her work with a children's and women's centre in Bangladesh. She brought lots of lovely items made at the centre for us to buy. These included scarves, shoe bags, phone cases and cards. These were so popular with the group that Rubina made £415 from the sales. All the money goes to her work at the Sreepur Village in Bangladesh.
Our next meeting will be on Saturday May 6th and will be a
day for us to make lace and display our latest work. If you wish to join us, this will be a good meeting to meet members, see their lace and chat.
Next year we shall be exhibiting our work at Haydock Lace Fair. The theme will be 'Celebrations'. Would members please let the committee know of any ideas for the exhibition and if they have any lace that can be included.
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.
