Many thanks to Pauline of Polly Jane Yarns, who gave an entertaining talk, interspersed with playing the accordion and ending with a sing song accompanied by the accordion. Pauline also bought some wonderful yarns and other knitting and crochet patterns and accessories for sale, so members were able to purchase some lovely items. We were lucky that Pauline could join us, as she will only be visiting Pudsey and Haydock Park in the future.
Our next meeting takes place on the 1 July, where members can display pieces of their work. We shall also have the sales table available, where members can sell and buy second hand lacemaking products. As always, we shall be making lace, catching up with news and sharing lunch together.
Should anyone like to visit us, the cost is £1, which includes tea, coffee and biscuits. Bring your own cup and, if you forget to bring lunch, you could buy something from a choice of local shops.
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.
